Description Ondrej Vasik 2010-06-15 11:07:41 UTC
Description of problem:
As discussed via private emails with Lennart Poettering avahi-autoipd and pulse user should have statically reserved uidgid pair. Additionally, avahi home directory should be different.
Reserved uidgid should look like (same as in Fedora Rawhide):
 name          uid gid         homedir                  shell
 avahi         70  70   /var/run/avahi-daemon      /sbin/nologin
 avahi-autoipd 170 170  /var/lib/avahi-autoipd     /sbin/nologin
 pulse         171 171  /var/run/pulse             /sbin/nologin

Steps to reproduce:
1. Check /usr/share/doc/setup-*/uidgid

Actual results:
 These reserved pairs are not present

Expected results:
  These pairs are present in reservation file.
