user asterisk does not exist – using root

Asterisk Users No Comments

Hello List,

I receive these messages when I was installing Asterisk a few minutes ago:

warning: user asterisk does not exist – using root
warning: group asterisk does not exist – using root

Is this user and group (asterisk) supposed to be created by the package
manager in some point? This is the first time I see these errors.
(I have no experience creating rpm packages).

Regards,
