I'm getting the following error while installing
xampp from AUR:
==> Creating a temporary mysql user/group with fakeadd... Error! Not in fakeuser environment Due to limitations of the .run file of this package, you must have a mysql user in your system prior to its build. You can create a mysql user by doing: groupadd mysql -g 992 useradd -u 992 -r -g mysql -s /bin/false mysql ==> ERROR: A failure occurred in package(). Aborting... Error making: xampp
So I tried to add the group using:
groupadd mysql -g 992
which gave me:
groupadd: GID '992' already exists
When I checked
/etc/group, I found the line
kvm:x:992: which explains
GID '992' is already in use.
So should I create a
mysql group with an unused
GID? Would that create problems later on?
