Description vax456 2013-10-05 23:53:05 UTC
I'm building several different Gentoo systems using crossdev.  In each case, when using '${CHOST}-emerge sys-apps/systemd', the diailout and systemd-journald group is not added to the built system's /etc/group file.

This isn't a systemd issue, it's a Portage issue because 'enewgroup dialout' and 'enewgroup systemd-journal' is not working as expected.  I haven't tested with other ebuilds, but I imagine other ebuilds will suffer from the same issue.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Set up any kind of crossdev environment
2.  cross-emerge systemd
3.  Break your monitor when you realized you pushed out a faulty init system just because one group was not added.
Actual Results:  
/usr/${CHOST}/etc/group does not contain the 'dialout' and 'systemd-journal' groups.

Expected Results:  
/usr/${CHOST}/etc/group should contain two new groups: dialout and systemd-journal.
