Description Nicolas Mailhot 2003-05-27 14:54:57 EDT
Seems useradd is not properly /dev/nulled in XFree86-xfs-4.3.0-12
Comment 1 Zach Gelnett 2003-05-27 18:45:25 EDT
I'm seeing the same error.  If you remove the xfs user and group from passwd, 
shadow, and group files it installs fine.
Comment 2 Nicolas Mailhot 2003-05-28 02:20:48 EDT
Sure. That's an rpm classic - we create a user but be do not care if it fails
(because the user already exists) so we shouldn't let rpm see adduser errors
