I've got an odd problem, that probably deserves a bug report, but I
don't know where to start looking for evidence.
I'm running openSUSE 15.0 "transactional server" on a vps. I had freenet
daemon installed, running as a dedicated "freenet" user.
What happened is that the "freenet" user suddenly disappeared. It's not
mentioned in /etc/passwd, /etc/shadow nor /etc/group. If I do "ls -l" in
/home/freenet, there are numbers instead of owner and group. Service
obviously fails to start.
I had a look at logs, but there's nothing alarming.
Do you have any clues, what could go wrong?
So, this happened again. Not only this, but also some other files in
/etc got reverted to earlier versions.
It seems to me that the mechanism of making /etc overlays does some
I've found that my config files are still available in
/var/lib/overlay/*, but those overlays are not mounted.
# mount | grep overlay
overlay on /etc type overlay
/var/lib/overlay/etc/wireguard/wg0.conf has some very old version, which
is visible now in /etc
Those are newer versions that I've made (overlay 151 is the latest
version I expected to find in /etc):
# ls -la /var/lib/overlay/*/etc/wireguard/wg0.conf
-rw------- 1 root root 600 01-14 11:43
-rw------- 1 root root 725 01-25 12:05
It seems the same happened to /etc/passwd, which caused my freenet user
Do you have any suggestions on how to debug this further?
