Create user during installation
This question is about a package that will likely not make it into
Debian (too specific). I even suspect this has some relevance.
I would like to install a package that creates it's own special user and
group during installation. I have utterly and totally failed to find a
ready made package that does that, with the sole exception of qmail-src
(from non-free) that creates them in the 655xx area. Not exactly what I
would like to do.
How do I create said user and group? How do I tell between useradd or
adduser failing due to user already existing, and other unrelated
reasons? Do I at all need to care about that?
Help would be greatly appreciated.
