I am attempting to install devstack on my Ubuntu 14.04 VM and I am getting stuck trying to create the stack user.

root@ubuntu:/tmp# devstack/tools/
/tmp/devstack/functions-common: line 144: conditional binary operator expected

Any idea why this is happening?

Hello, Devstack should be run in normal user mode, not ROOT. Follow this Document.

yeah, i believe, even these operation will be on a normal user not root. from the provided output, we can see its root user ?

I am running the same script with a non root user and I have a similar error.

[simo@localhost ~]$ devstack/tools/ ;su stack /home/simo/devstack/functions-common: line 162: conditional binary operator expected su: user stack does not exist
