Comment 1 Robin Lee 2012-09-29 04:10:00 EDT
Manually run
# groupadd -g 23 squid
is ok.
Comment 2 Tomas Mraz 2012-10-01 03:48:55 EDT
If manually running groupadd is fine, it might be either some other problem in the %pre squid scriptlet or perhaps a SELinux issue.
Comment 3 Michal Luscon 2012-10-18 09:08:19 EDT
Do you have any unusual SELinux settings on your system? I am not experiencing this problem with my f17.
Comment 4 Robin Lee 2012-10-18 21:55:21 EDT
I am not familiar with SELinux. How to find out if I have some unusual settings?

Squid PRE scriptlet seems a bit different since it hard codes the group id.
Comment 5 Robin Lee 2012-10-23 22:35:36 EDT
Tested with selinux-policy-3.10.0-156.fc17
