Description cyberbat 2014-08-14 21:04:41 UTC
/etc/mdev.conf being installed supposes that system group 'dialout' exist but it's not by default in gentoo and this situation gives me these errors while booting:

 * Populating /dev with existing devices with mdev -s ...
mdev: unknown user/group 'root:dialout' on line 79
mdev: unknown user/group 'root:dialout' on line 80

Bug 454556 and Bug 463376, and so forth

As in, mdev should be forced to use group 'uucp' instead of 'dialout', propably by simple sed like...

sed -i -e 's:dialout:uucp:' <filename_in_the_mdev_source_tree>

...in the ebuild's src_prepare()

When I do the next release of baselayout, it will have a dialout group
instead of uucp, so I don't know that this is a good idea.
