Description Ken Crandall 2000-02-29 17:16:06 UTC
When installing the Squid RPM, you get two instances of the error:

user squid does not exist - using root

Shouldn't the install scripts for squid create these users?  It seems that
running it as root would be a security hole...

Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2000-02-29 20:43:59 UTC
It adds the user as part of the %pre script ; it's possible
the useradd failed, I suppose, due to lack of permissions
or somesuch.

Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2000-02-29 20:51:59 UTC
It's failing because there's a random squid group in NIS. Bleah.
