Description John Newbigin 2003-02-05 01:01:13 UTC
Description of problem:
According to the man page and info page
/usr/bin/id -G should "print only the supplementary groups"

In fact it also prints the primary group

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Tested on 7.2 & 8.0

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. groupadd testgroup
2. useradd -g users -G testgroup testuser
3. id -Gn
Actual results:
users testgroup

Expected results:

Additional info:
Could be that the docs are incorrect and listing the primary group is the
correct output?

Docs are incorrect.  Man page fixed in coreutils in rawhide; info page still

Comment 2 Tim Waugh 2004-12-10 12:51:17 UTC
Reported upstream.
