Description of problem:
Installing bind via "up2date -i caching-nameserver" produces these errors:

warning: user named does not exist - using root
warning: group named does not exist - using root
warning: user named does not exist - using root

But does add to /etc/passwd:

Are you using nscd?

Comment 2 keith adamson 2003-02-25 01:26:44 UTC
No.  Could it be that when I ran "up2date -i caching-nameserver" and the "bind"
package was added automatically by up2date ("bind" wasn't installed before hand)
but up2date actually installed the "caching-nameserver" package before the
"bind" package and it's the "caching-nameserver" package complaining because the
"bind" package hasn't added the "named" user id yet?

Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2003-02-25 01:30:20 UTC
If that happens, that's an up2date bug.

Comment 4 keith adamson 2003-02-25 03:54:58 UTC
Well I tested it and that's the case.  Install caching-nameserver alone:

# up2date -i caching-nameserver

The following packages were added to your selection to satisfy dependencies:

bind                                    9.2.1          16

Now install both caching-nameserver and bind at once:

# up2date -i caching-nameserver bind
