Description Michal Jaegermann 2001-04-08 18:34:17 EDT
Programs from 'nut' package are configured and compiled to use
'nogroup' group id.  There is no such group and 'service nut start'
fails due to this.

Comment 1 Ngo Than 2001-04-13 15:31:45 EDT
It's compiled with --with-uid=`id -u nobody` --with-gid=`id -g nobody`

i think, you have wrong id for nobody.
Comment 2 Michal Jaegermann 2001-04-13 16:28:58 EDT
# rpm -qf /usr/bin/bestups
# strings /usr/bin/bestups | grep nog

and a daemon complaints on a startup about missing 'nogroup' gid.

It is quite possible that a configuration and/or compilation of the
whole thing is buggy but this what this report was about.
Comment 3 Ngo Than 2001-04-19 06:00:09 EDT
it's fixed in nut-0.44.3-1.
