Description Mark McLoughlin 2009-08-05 06:28:23 EDT
On F-11:

  $> rpm -q shadow-utils
  $> groupadd -r foo
  $> getent group foo 

with rawhide or F-11 updates-testing:

  $> rpm -q shadow-utils
  $> groupadd -r foo
  $> getent group foo

This is a serious problem because by allocating upwards, we're allocating in the 100-200 range which is now used by system accounts like qemu(107). See also bug #515667

The "allocate upwards" behaviour is long-standing, but it seems a recent shadow-utils re-base has broken it

Removing from F12VirtBlocker; using bug #515779 for F-12 tracking
Comment 3 Mark McLoughlin 2009-08-06 12:43:28 EDT
Fixed in rawhide, f12-alpha tag request here:
