system-config-bind Initialization Error: chown named:named invalid user
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:14 EST
Description of problem:
When starting system-config-bind for the first time following bind install and
no prior configuration of bind, initialization fails with the following message
in a GTK dialog box:
Configuration could not be initialized from defaults: /bin/chown: `named:named':
This is most likely due to bind not creating the named default user anymore but
only the named group.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install bind and system-config-bind on a clean (as in no prior bind config) box
2. start system-config-bind
Get the above describe error message box
system-config-bind should go ahead with initialization and not use chown but
instead use chgrp to set rights on configuration files
I installed both packages on F7/x86_64. The bind package created the named user
and group and the system-config-bind package created initial default bind
configuration and normally started.
Versions of tested packages are the same, so I'm not able to reproduce it.
Please, try it again and let me know if you have any other details.
I will ask the bind package maintainer whether it is possible that the bind
package doesn't create named user during installation, but I don't think so.
Weird, I am not able to reproduce either.
