ircd install fails to create ircd user
Last modified: 2008-04-22 18:35:34 EDT
Description of problem:
During installation of ircd-hybrid rpm script fails to create ircd user
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpm -vi ircd-hybrid-7.2.3-2.fc8.i386.rpm
No ircd user created in /etc/passwd
ircd user should be created
Unfortunately the useradd code in %pre script has stderr redirected to /dev/null
so useful error messages are not seen (why would anyone redirect stderr to
/dev/null?). Perhaps it is because of the "fedora-useradd 14 -s ..." where the
14 is probably a syntax error? This is an old bug that has been around since fc4.
