    Default How do I get group "trusted" onto my system?

    System: Clean network install of TW 20170710, 'zypper dup'ed occasionally, arriving at current 20170808.

    During some of the zypper dups I have noticed some warnings about 'unknown group trusted'. Searching the forums found several threads, but no definitive solution. These were based on various permission problems - same symptoms here.

    A YAST search shows that "group(trusted)" is provided by system-user-root, but I see no reference to that within the installed files.

    So, my questions:

    1. Is this a new bug? On what component?
    2. Can I just go into YAST and create the group "trusted", and if so do I need a specific groupid?
    3. What do I do after that? Just run chkstat?

    Checking a Tumbleweed system, I see the line
    Code:
    trusted:x:461:
    in "/etc/groups". The line appears to have been added some time after the Tumbleweed install. The number "461" is probably just the first unused number in a range, so might not be significant.

    The date on "/etc/group" is todays date -- at about the time of my most recent update.

    There is a package "system-user-root" but I am not seeing much information on it. You could always try a forced re-install of that package.

    Re-installing the package "system-user-root" is a good idea:

    Code:
    > sudo zypper info --provides system-user-root
    
    Information for package system-user-root:
    -----------------------------------------
    Repository     : openSUSE:Tumbleweed              
    Name           : system-user-root

    I looked at both my 42.3 systems - they each have it as groupid 42.

    The date on "/etc/group" is todays date -- at about the time of my most recent update.

    Did that - no change.

    I looked into the system-user-root package. Its only one file that defines the root user and groups user and shadow - nothing about trusted. Looks like this is just a loose end from the groups reorg that was done in TW about the time I installed it.

    Time for bugzilla.
