Re: Dbus, Hald Groups?

Debian uses the UID range from (I think) 500-999 for system users (users
which don't belong to a person, but are used by daemons provided by
specific packages). These are assigned dynamically when you install a
package which needs one.

However, on my system dbus is running as the user messagebus. Hal isn't
installed on the machine I currently have access to, but boinc doesn't
look right either. Are you sure you aren't confusing user and group ids?

There is no justice in road accidents.
