Comment 2 Jesse Keating 2010-03-09 15:36:58 UTC
Do you have custom epel configs, that have a .rpmnew file sitting next to them?  The useradd default was either wrong for Fedora, or wrong for EL, so we changed the default and overrode the default in the epel config files we ship.

Comment 3 Frank Büttner 2010-03-10 07:03:15 UTC
yes there was an rpnew file.
And after add the line
"config_opts['useradd'] = '/usr/sbin/useradd -m -u %(uid)s -g %(gid)s -d %(home)s -n %(user)s'"
to the old one, all will be work again.
