I need to find a group in linux that doesn't appear in my /etc/groups file.
I run the following command and get an error
sudo adduser --disabled-login --gecos 'GitLab' git adduser: The group `git' already exists.
Yet when I run the following command, there is no group git
cat /etc/group | grep git #no results cat /etc/passwd | grep git #no results cat /etc/shaddow |grep git #no results
This is a brand new Ubuntu 12.04 box with no changes except it was tied to LDAP. Haven't even installed vim or git yet.
Why am I getting the error the group git already exists? And is there any way around it? I want to install gitlab.
