In my network there is a special user group with the ID
101. Unfortunatelly, Debian wants to use the ID
101 for the group
Since it exists only locally, I assigned
systemd-journal the group ID
99 and so I was able to have our special user group
101. I know this is asking for trouble, but the alternative is using a distro where group ID
101 is not used by the OS.
Every time something/-one calls
dpkg-reconfigure systemd there is an error, b/c
dpkg is unhappy about the GID change. In these cases I switch the GID of
systemd-journal back to
101, do the reconfigure and then switch it to
This is so much manual work, I was wondering: How can I make dpkg accept the GID change of
systemd-journal to 99? Can I make it ignore this problem?
