Description David Bonnafous 2009-04-09 08:58:41 UTC
as root, 'emerge man' fail.

 * Adding group 'man' to your system ...
 *  - Groupid: 15
/opt/gentoo/usr/portage/eclass/eutils.eclass: line 773: groupadd: command not found

Is-it a PATH problem ?
Comment 1 Fabian Groffen gentoo-dev 2009-05-01 20:38:52 UTC
it partially is, as groupadd is in /usr/sbin/groupadd, but I'm not sure if existing code can deal with it.
Comment 2 Fabian Groffen gentoo-dev 2009-10-25 10:35:11 UTC
do you have a groupadd utility availble?  e.g. `which groupadd`
