I use the same package-management system in building form LFS 6.4, but I
don't have that problem. I use "install_package 'Packagename' packagename
packagename", as suggested by the package-management system.
"install_package 'Test.1.2' test.1.2 test.1.2" works fine with me.
That the problem arises after the installation of Shadow does not surprise
me. After the installation groupadd from LFS-Shadow takes over from Shadow
of your hostsystem.
But why do you use the details in the first place? I use the suggestions
from the package-management system and strip the details, only keeping the
name of the package.
