Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 929204
Anaconda creates group for user with GID 0
Last modified: 2013-05-24 17:17:55 EDT
Description of problem:
Create user "test" during installation. Anaconda for this user creates group "test" with GID 0, which conflicts with group "root" also with GID 0. So when you login with user "test", command "groups" prints that you belongs to group "root" instead of group "test".
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start an installation and proceed to the "CREATE USER" spoke.
2. Fill out the form and confirm:
Full name: test
Make this user administrator: unchecked
Require a password to use this account: checked
Confirm password: redhat
3. Finish the installation.
After reboot to the newly installed system, you can see in /etc/group following:
GID for group "root" and "test" must not be the same.

This might require work outside pykickstart - not sure yet. At the least, pykickstart should be defaulting to None instead of 0.
