    Default Is this systemd core dump needed?

    I recently updated my TW install and in the User and Group Management in Yast in addition to me there is this under the users tab:
    Code:
    systemd core dump      systemd Core Dumper              998     systemd-core dump
    systemd-network          systemd Network Management 999    systemd-network
    My question is are these really needed or can it be safely deleted?
    We are what we think.
    All that we are arises with our thoughts.
    With our thoughts we make the world.

    Why would you want to delete them? Like all other users pre-configured in the system (about 20 of them) they are there for a reason even if you do not fully understand that reason.

    And specially if you do not understand that reason, it might not be a good idea to remove them.

    In this case I assume that systemd uses these users for doing specific tasks that do not require superuser privileges and as you know, when it is not a must to use root, never do it.
