preinstall scriptlet contains wrong username
Last modified: 2013-07-11 23:03:00 EDT
Description of problem:
Preinstall scriptlet contains the lines
preinstall scriptlet (using /bin/sh):
getent group uucp >/dev/null || groupadd -g 14 -r uucp
getent passwd uucp >/dev/null || \
useradd -r -u 10 -g uucp -d /var/spool/uucp \
-c "Uucp user" news
The username "news" is wrong, it should be "uucp".
The effect is that the user "uucp" is not created.
This entail other errors when an existing user "uucp" is expected.
