Hi all,

I am using the pwd lib where I am codeing things like ...

gid = pwd.getpwnam(apache2_user)[3]

where as I would like to code it as ...

gid = pwd.getpwnam(apache2_user)[pwd.pw_gid]

but I get

gid = pwd.getpwnam(apache2_user)[pwd.pw_gid]
AttributeError: 'module' object has no attribute 'pw_gid'
dave at dev-system:~/kmotion2$ sudo ./install.py

What am I missing ?
