Description Eric Moret 2007-08-28 20:04:15 EDT
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:
Initialization Error:
Configuration could not be initialized from defaults: /bin/chown: `named:named':
invalid user

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):

How reproducible:

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
Actual results:
Get the above describe error message box

Expected results:
system-config-bind should go ahead with initialization and not use chown but
instead use chgrp to set rights on configuration files
Comment 1 Ondrej Dvoracek 2007-08-29 07:31:20 EDT
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.
Cheers, Ondrej

Weird, I am not able to reproduce either.
