Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 426607
Monotone-server RPM cannot add "monotone" user id.
Last modified: 2007-12-26 18:51:21 EST
Description of problem:
Error adding user in post script of monotone-server
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Ensure monotone-server is not installed and the user "monotone" does not exist.
2. yum install monotone-server
Running Transaction Test
Finished Transaction Test
Transaction Test Succeeded
Usage: useradd [options] LOGIN
-b, --base-dir BASE_DIR base directory for the new user account
The user "monotone" should be added without error.
It can be easily seen that the "post" script for monotone-server forgets to add
the user name when it uses the "useradd" command to add a user.
$ rpm -q --scripts monotone-server
useradd -r -g monotone -r -d /var/db/monotone -s /sbin/nologin \
-c "Monotone Netsync Server" [XXX: user expected here!]
