Re: Official Debian admin groups (dialout, audio, etc)



Is there a definitive list somewhere of the out-of-the-box admin
groups for Debian? As in, "dialout" for access to serial ports, ?? for
access to external storage, etc?

I interpret the debian policy
(<http://www.debian.org/doc/debian-policy/ch-opersys.html#s9.2.2>)
such that the groups you refer to should be defined by the package
base-passwd and have ids in the range 0-99.

The package base-passwd contains a list in the file
/usr/share/doc/base-passwd/users-and-groups.html naming such users and
groups.
