Description Peter Vrabec 2010-05-20 15:02:01 UTC
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. Please fix it in Fedora too. thnx.
