I understand that. What I was remarking about was the assignment in the 
/home/dan directory. On the Ubuntu side of my system my UID=GID=1000. I 
expected to see 1000:1000 when I checked the attributes. Instead I saw 
libuuid:sudo. This is the first time I've ever seen that when I look at 
files from different "systems" on another "system."

Just by way of example, from by Package Users System for "hdajackretask" 
that I just installed. UID=GID=10306 for alsa-tools-1.0.27. While I was 
in Ubuntu I checked it and it was listed as 10306:10306.

I was remarking on the oddity of "libuuid:sudo" when I looked at my 
files from LFS in Ubuntu. In my Ubuntu there is not a user "libuuid" nor 
is there a group "sudo." This is "hinky."
