Description Edgar Hoch 2013-07-02 22:02:57 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
exit 0

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.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
