Subject [jira] Created: (CASSANDRA-1816) cassandra deb should depend on adduser
Date Fri, 03 Dec 2010 18:06:11 GMT
cassandra deb should depend on adduser

                 Key: CASSANDRA-1816
             Project: Cassandra
          Issue Type: Bug
         Environment: Debian squeeze
            Reporter: paul cannon
            Priority: Minor
         Attachments: cass-1816.txt

The cassandra debian package uses the addgroup and adduser commands in its postinst script,
which are found in the 'adduser' package, but the cassandra debian package does not depend
on adduser.   When a user does not already have adduser installed, this will lead to an error

Setting up cassandra (0.7.0~rc1) ...
/var/lib/dpkg/info/cassandra.postinst: 50: addgroup: not found
dpkg: error processing cassandra (--configure):
 subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 127

Yes, this won't happen much, because systems without adduser installed are rare.  But adduser
is not "Essential: yes", so it will happen sometimes in bare-bones VMs or development environments.
