Comment 1 Bug Zapper 2009-06-09 11:10:04 EDT
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 11 development cycle.
Changing version to '11'.

More information and reason for this action is here:
Comment 2 Harald Hoyer 2009-06-30 06:55:16 EDT
udev should have run

/usr/sbin/groupadd -g 39 video 

do you already have group 39 in your /etc/groups?

$ grep 39 /etc/group
Comment 3 Sandro Mathys 2009-06-30 07:03:11 EDT
$ grep 39 /etc/group

I'll have to check if this msg still appears, actually, it's been a while and lots of updates since I reported this.
