Description petrosyan 2008-06-18 14:55:35 UTC
Description of problem:
MAKEDEV uses 'getent' command in its %pre scripts:

# Add the floppy group and the vcsa user.
getent group floppy >/dev/null || groupadd -g 19 -r floppy
getent passwd vcsa >/dev/null || \
useradd -r -d /dev -s /sbin/nologin -u 69 \
    -c "virtual console memory owner" vcsa
exit 0

'getent' command is provided by glibc-common package but MAKEDEV does not
require it. This creates installation errors when doing a minimal Fedora install:

%packages --nobase

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. do a minimal Fedora install
%packages --nobase
2. look at install.log

Jesse rebuilt the other day to make sure we require /usr/bin/getent, so this
should be fixed in 3.23-5.

Comment 2 petrosyan 2008-07-30 13:50:49 UTC
when will MAKEDEV-3.23-5 get built for rawhide?

Comment 3 Chris Lumens 2008-07-30 14:06:40 UTC
Weird, the spec file got updated but it never got rebuilt.  I'm taking care of
that right now.  Thanks for alerting me.
