Description Charles Lopes 2005-05-31 15:35:58 UTC
If nscd runs, the package clamav-data often fails to create the user clamav.
This is due to a negative clamav group query being cached when fedora-useradd is
run. I would advice running nscd --invalidate=group between fedora-groupadd and
Alternatively, fedora-usermgmt tools could be changed to invalidate nscd caches
when necessary.

Thx, I modified fedora-usermgmt in version 0.8+ to do the 'nscd -i...'. This
should fix this issue.
