Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 471732
Explicit uid 39 requested by Canna even Canna user is NOT listed within uidgid setup file
Last modified: 2008-11-17 13:37:26 EST
Description of problem:
Canna claims explicit uid 39 without listing Canna user within oficial uidgid file. This could cause troubles when uid 39 is already in use on the system. Is there any need for that explicit uid 39? If so, it should have been requested to be added into uidgid file in setup package(no such requested filled in bugzilla so far).
Steps to Reproduce:
1. See /usr/share/doc/setup-*/uidgid
No Canna user within uidgid file
Canna user within uidgid file OR Canna user WITHOUT explicit uid request.
Just for your info, I'm setup package maintainer and there is very few number of uid/gids left under 100. Recently was requested to add audio and video group to Fedora, I have chosen two gid numbers - and one of those was 39 ... so without my initiative and google search for possible usage of this uid/gid it would have been taken without any warning and canna will be no longer running correctly. Please let me know if this explicit requirement is really needed (and canna user should be added to uidgid file - or if that uidgid number could be used (and explicit number uid 39 could be removed from canna))
That issue has been fixed since FC-6. it no longer requests the explicit uid/gid.
Ah, sorry, my fault, it seems I accidently looked to very old spec file when browsing web. So will use that uidgid pair in rawhide , thanks for quick response.
