Description Justin Sherrill 2008-09-22 12:00:29 EDT
In 5.3 run the installer on a fresh system and you get the message 

Installer prints "chown: `root:apache` : invalid group"

Not sure what it's trying to chown, but apache hasn't been installed yet, so that group wouldn't exist.

Note, i was using iso Satellite-5.3.0-RHEL5-re20080919.1-i386-embedded-oracle.iso
Comment 2 Devan Goodwin 2008-09-24 16:12:07 EDT
Fixed in git revision bd321d5fa17cc3794eba3c56ff065acb12329124 and svn revision 177262.

Removed the permissions setting. Instead updated the proxy packages to use the
correct permissions for /var/log/rhn. About 4 packages claim ownership to the
dir and suspect these were setting it wrong. Turns out they're not supposed to
be getting installed on a satellite anyhow so hopefully directory permissions
will be healthily set by the spacewalk-backend rpms.

Waiting for next respin to mark on_qa.

Installer does not print this message upon the installation of the re20081128.0-i386 ISO.  Moving to VERIFIED.
