Description Anthony Chavez 2011-12-22 11:30:14 UTC
Similarly to ports/105122, the GID chosen for the avahi-autoipd group (546) is the same as the Samba well-known RID for the local Guests group, as described here:


Fix: The patch attached to this PR addresses the issue in both ports, and I will be submitting a separate PR to address the issue of reserving well-known user default RIDs so that this problem can be avoided in the future.

It should be noted in both PRs that with the exception of 3 UIDs, it is only GIDs that should be reserved.  Also, having equivalent UIDs and GIDs is not strictly necessary, and seems to be done purely for aesthetics in most cases.  My patch carries on this convention.

Also, both ports create and use the same user (avahi-autoipd) with the same UID.  It's assumed that this is intentional, but the pkg-install scripts differ in that the user is given a different GECOS name depending on which port is installed.  I've taken the liberty of correcting this as well.

Patch attached with submission follows:
How-To-Repeat: sudo portmaster net/avahi-autoipd

  Use a new GID for avahi-autoipd to avoid a conflict with the Samba well-known RID
  for the local Guests group.
