Group wheel rpm

What package creates group wheel?
I have made a very minimal .iso and try to add a user “live” to group “wheel”
group “wheel” is not found.

setup package provides default /etc/group file. You can find what package provides a particular file with dnf provides "filename" command.

@ersen Thx, although setup package is installed and /etc/group exists it seems that some other package creates the wheel group. I chose to add the wheel group manually now instead.

This means an empty wheel group is in the default configuration for the setup package.
It looks like something has gone wrong in your case.
You should submit an issue if you can reproduce the problem.
