Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 102518
useradd man page bug
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:06:57 EST
The useradd man page says that the default is to not create a user's home directory:
-m (...) The default is to not create the directory and to not copy any files.
That is obviousely wrong. What really happens is described right below
for -M (-M is included in the shadow-4.0.3-redhat.patch):
-M The user home directory will not be created, even if the system
wide settings from /etc/login.defs is to create home dirs.
So maybe add the note about /etc/login.defs to -m, too?
(CREATE_HOME is not set in the original package, so the current behaviour of -m
is Red Hat specific.)
For 3.9 we are looking only for critical and performance related bugs
