Hello,

while emerging two different packages I get errors for adding groups.

emerge -vu app-misc/screen
Code:

 * Adding group 'utmp' to your system ...
 *  - Groupid: 406
groupadd: group 'utmp' already exists
 * ERROR: app-misc/screen-4.0.3-r6 failed (setup phase):
 *   (no error message)
 *
 * Call stack:
 *                ebuild.sh, line  85:  Called pkg_setup
 *   screen-4.0.3-r6.ebuild, line  27:  Called enewgroup 'utmp' '406'
 *              user.eclass, line 343:  Called die
 * The specific snippet of code:
 *              groupadd -r ${opts} "${egroup}" || die


emerge -vu www-servers/apache
Code:

 * Adding group 'apache' to your system ...
 *  - Groupid: 81
groupadd: group 'apache' already exists
 * ERROR: www-servers/apache-2.2.23 failed (setup phase):
 *   (no error message)
 *
 * Call stack:
 *         ebuild.sh, line  85:  Called pkg_setup
 *         ebuild.sh, line 319:  Called apache-2_pkg_setup
 *   apache-2.eclass, line 365:  Called enewgroup 'apache' '81'
 *       user.eclass, line 343:  Called die
 * The specific snippet of code:
 *              groupadd -r ${opts} "${egroup}" || die


Any help would been greatly appreciated

Thanks,
Thomas

MrDatamaskinen ... the user.eclass checks that these groups exist or not prior to creating them:

user.eclass
Code:
    # see if group already exists
    if [[ -n $(egetent group "${egroup}") ]] ; then
        return 0
    fi
    einfo "Adding group '${egroup}' to your system ..."

So, 'getent' returns nothing but your /etc/group has an entry. I'm not sure what env your attempting to emerge in, but I'm inlined to think that its a chroot and the env hasn't been updated.

best ... khay

Well,

took me some time to get back. It wasn't a chroot problem.

An "emerge --sync" and a "reemerge of portage" solved the problem. I had that problem on two different machines with different packages.

Best regards,
Thomas
