      Description

      This is from the forums...

      Hello,

      I am trying to install the membase binary on a ubuntu machine (64 bit) by typing:
      sudo dpkg -i northscale-server_1.6.0beta4_x86_64.deb.deb

      Error messages:
      Unpacking northscale-server (from northscale-server_1.6.0beta4_x86_64.deb.deb) ...
      groupadd: invalid option – r

      dpkg: error processing northscale-server_1.6.0beta4_x86_64.deb.deb (--install):
      subprocess pre-installation script returned error exit status 1

      The solution was:
      You should create manually group and user befrore install binary:
      groupadd northscale
      useradd -g northscale -d /opt/NorthScale -s /bin/bash -c "NorthScale system user" northscale

      That solved the problem.

      Can we look at the code and see if we are using a possibly invalid option with 'groupadd' during the debian package installation?
