When trying to add root and marco to the logcheck group I get:

#grep ^wheel: /etc/group | awk -F : '{ print $4 }' | xargs \ -n1 pw
groupmod logcheck -m
#xargs:  -n1: No such file or directory

Should I add them manually to /etc/group? Or is this not enough to make
it work.


Around computers it is difficult to find the correct unit of time to
measure progress.  Some cathedrals took a century to complete.  Can you
imagine the grandeur and scope of a program that would take as long?
