Description Peter Vrabec 2010-05-20 10:27:22 EDT
Description of problem:
Please fix user/group creation in your spec file[1]. There were problems when (UID != GID) && (UID<200) [2]. For example: tryitd:x:194:482:TryIt:/:/sbin/nologin

Problem was caused by change/fix of shadow-utis behaviour. useradd does not create group with same GID as user's UID for IDs < 200 (static/reserved) unless it's done this way:

getent group qemu >/dev/null || groupadd -g 107 -r qemu
getent passwd qemu >/dev/null || \
  useradd -r -u 107 -g qemu -G kvm -d / -s /sbin/nologin \
    -c "qemu user" qemu

This issue should be fixed as soon as possible. Note, it can't be resolved by any update once we have RHEL6 GA, thnx..
