Hello,
I fully install Puppy Tahrpup 6.0.5 on my old PC, but I need motion package install, which needed motion group
I can't add this group using command
Code:
groupadd root motion

Since by default, puppy runs as root, groups aren't usually a thing. Try this.
Make a safe backup copy of your /etc/groups file, then try adding the line:

Code:
motion:x:130:root



Make sure the "130" number isn't already being used. (it's the group id) If it is, use an unused number instead.

Then reboot to test.

I hope this helps ..
