Subject RE: Chukwa RPM does not create user "chukwa"
Date Fri, 20 Jan 2012 03:47:29 GMT
I wrote a patch to fix this issue, but the patch submission dialog in JIRA has no place to
actually put the patch itself, or at least none that I could see. I am attaching it to this
message instead. It's a very simple patch to create the user when the rpm is installed and
remove it when the rpm is uninstalled.

In theory, the headless user should be added by RPM.  At the time the code was developed,
the company that we worked for had centralized LDAP.  Hence, it was neglected from RPM installation.
 Please file a jira, and we will fix it in the next minor release.  Thanks.
