Comment 1 Tavis Aitken 2010-06-29 17:24:10 UTC
I looked up the spec file at http://cvs.fedoraproject.org/viewvc/EL-5/beanstalkd/beanstalkd.spec?revision=1.5&view=markup

On line 64 the useradd should use the -g flag to add the user to the group that was just created. 

The line would end up looking like this: 

%{_sbindir}/useradd -r -m -c "beanstalkd user" -s /bin/false \    
-d %{beanstalkd_home} -g %{beanstalkd_gropu} %{beanstalkd_user} 2>/dev/null || :

Comment 2 Jeremy Hinegardner 2010-06-30 08:26:28 UTC
Yup, I just had this happen to me today too.  It looks like the machine I tested the install on already had a beanstalkd user in it.

I'll be fixing it tomorrow and pushing through the new package ASAP.

Tavis, if you can do a test and the bump the karma on updates this should get propagated faster.
