Default git update groupadd failu Invalid configuration: SYS_GID_MIN (101), GID_MIN (100), SYS_GID_MAX (99)

All,

pacman -Syu this morning and groupadd failed while installing git with the
following message:

( 28/115) upgrading git
[###########################] 100%
groupadd: Invalid configuration: SYS_GID_MIN (101), GID_MIN (100), SYS_GID_MAX (99)
useradd: group 'git' does not exist
error: command failed to execute correctly

It appears to see a min of 100 and a max of 99. That doesn't appear to ever work.

This is the default in /etc/login.defs :

#
# Min/max values for automatic gid selection in groupadd
#
GID_MIN 1000
GID_MAX 60000
# System accounts
SYS_GID_MIN 500
SYS_GID_MAX 999



Is yours changed?

Not since May 31, 2009

Looking at it, there are no entries for SYS_GID_MIN or SYS_GID_MAX. This box
was originally installed somewhere around April 2009 and has been updated at
least weekly since then. So it looks like this file may need to be updated on
Arch's end if there are needed changes that are not in this one. I've never
touched it.
