Is there any better way of rebuilding /etc/groups than guessing and manually adding one-by-one.


Can I somehow list all group IDs used by the file system?

You should start with /usr/src/etc/group, which is the original version of the groups file.

For each user account added, normally a group is also created with gid == uid. Once you've got those back, add any users to wheel and so forth, and then do a "find /usr -nogroup" (check other paths if needed) to see whether you're missing something, perhaps from ports.
