Re: Adding user to some other groups
Thanks intrigeri and Ronny for the pointer to the preseed for
passwd/user-default-groups. I put the list of groups I wanted
in config/chroot_local-preseed/user, and later in
config/preseed/user-groups.preseed.chroot instead (which might be the "new"
place to put it -- I read the manual!) and in both cases user ends up
with only a subset of the groups specified. So:
root@ingrid:~/smrg-live# cat config/preseed/user-groups.preseed.chroot
debconf passwd/user-default-groups string audio cdrom dip floppy video plugdev netdev powerdev scanner bluetooth iocard
user cdrom floppy audio dip video plugdev scanner netdev bluetooth
This is on 3.0~a40-1.
root@ingrid:~/smrg-live# grep iocard *.log
binary.log:creating iocard group...
binary.log:Adding group `iocard' (GID 112) ...
/etc/groups on the target machine has iocard:x:112: which I think I would
expect. The group is created as a result of setting up the libcomedi0
package at chroot build time. There is no other reference to iocard in
The only other thing of significance is that during squashfs creation, I get

...iocard has mysteriously vanashed.
I don't understand what's going on here :P
