Oh, wait, did you say that the group file is *empty*! (i.e., a file
with zero byte size)!

*That* could be a problem.  On my systems, I have both an /etc/group
and an /etc/group- file, and they are almost identical.  (They differ
by one line.)  Try copying "/etc/group-" to "/etc/group".  (Do this
as root.)  Then change the file permissions of /etc/group to
-rw-r--r-- (644).  Then shutdown and reboot.  I wonder what happened
to your /etc/group file?  That's very strange!  You didn't accidentally
erase it, did you?
