debathena-phyesiodfs requires fuse group; configure fails if it does not exist

Reported by: ratinox Owned by:
Priority: normal Milestone: The Distant Future
Component: config-package-dev Keywords:
Cc: slz Fixed in version: debathena-pyhesiodfs 1.1-0debathena3
Upstream bug:


The debathena-phyesiodfs package for Debian (jessie is the only one I've tested) fails to configure when the fuse group does not exist. Manually creating the fuse group (groupadd, vigr, whatever) and restarting the configuration step allows configuration to proceed normally.

Solution: package configuration should check the existence of the fuse group and run an appropriate groupadd command if it does not exist.

The postinst for the fuse package creates the fuse group; how did you get as far as installing debathena-pyhesiodfs without that having been run?

comment:2 in reply to: ↑ 1 Changed 10 years ago by ratinox

That's a very good question. The fuse base packages (fuse, libfuse2) weren't installed on my test box prior to this morning's update so this is something fairly recent.

This may be a Debian packaging bug. On my test box I've run:

aptitude purge fuse
aptitude install fuse

and my /etc/group remains unchanged.

The fuse group is intentionally no longer created in jessie ( Debian:733312).
