Description Michael Fleming 2008-06-20 21:07:50 EDT
Description of problem:

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Always, provided.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. "yum install crossfire" where there is no existing "crossfire" user on server.
Actual results:
Warnings about crossfire user not existing (file permissions on install)
Server won't start as crossfire user doesn't exist

Expected results:
Crossfire server starts as expected user.

Additional info:
Looks like the scriptlet still has a couple of defaults left in:

useradd -r -g crossfire -d /usr/share/crossfire -s /sbin/nologin \
    -c "Useful comment about the purpose of this account" USERNAME

Should probably be:

useradd -r -g crossfire -d /usr/share/crossfire -s /sbin/nologin \
    -c "Crossfire Server" crossfire
