Description gareth 2000-03-26 18:49:15 UTC
If you try to create a user with a home directory at a non existent point
in the directory structure, Linuxconf/userconf fails with a
uninformative error message.

For example, if one tries to create a user "test" with home directory

/home/customer/test

and /home/customer doesn't exists, userconf fails with the message
"Password did not change"

Comment 1 Brent Fox 2002-06-05 16:15:17 UTC
Closing because we don't ship linuxconf anymore

Comment 2 Red Hat Bugzilla 2006-02-21 18:47:38 UTC
Changed to 'CLOSED' state since 'RESOLVED' has been deprecated.
