Hi Maxim,

space.bb --> chromium recipe in https://github.com/OSSystems/meta-browser/tree/master/recipes-browser/chromium

app.bb --> http-server.bb attached

I have created a group "www" in http-server_0.10.0.bb and trying to add "chromium" user to this group in chromium-x11_%.bbappend.

But the useradd command is failed: group 'www' does not exit.

Hello All,

I am trying add my custom user e.g: "user1" to this group "grp1" in

USERADD_PARAM_${PN} = "-d ${localstatedir}/lib/space/ -s /bin/false -G grp1
-U user1"

The useradd command failed saying the "useradd: group 'grp1' does not
exist". I have also tried adding DEPENDS_${PN} = "app" in space.bb, but it
doesn't help.

How can I add my custom user to my custom group in bitbake recipe?

Please share your sample recipes here. It will be helpful to debug the problem.
