I have setup a new build server for the upcoming Alpine Linux v2.4
release and bumped into an issue with a limit (or bug?) in uclibc.
The build failed when trying to add a user called "postgrey". From the
>>> postgrey: Creating user postgrey
adduser: unknown group nogroup
The group "nogroup" is there have have worked up til now.
>From the /etc/groups:
Checking what groups asterisk belongs to:
$ groups asterisk
65533groups: unknown ID 65533
So i think this happens due to the way the /etc/group is parsed. When
the line passes a limit (128 chars?) the parser will simply skip this
Was reported earlier:
I suppose I could patch uclibc to extend the line buffer length
__UCLIBC_PWD_BUFFER_SIZE__ for now. Where is it defined?
Any ideas how to fix it properly?
