32 bit UID Support
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:58 EDT
I hear that the new kernel supports 32 bit UID's.. I notice pieces/parts of
the 2.4.0 kernel in the /usr/src/ folder, but it is not all there.. i am
going to try installing the test7 kernel to see if that fixes this, but I
My organization runs unix (Solaris 7/8) on all desktops and has NFS home
directories.. I would like to run Linux on my desktop, however it has YET
to support the super HIGH UID's. I attempted the 2.4.0 kernel on 6.2 and
kept getting suid errors when attempting to log in.. which means I was
actually binding to the NIS server an authenticating, but none of the
internal stuff could handle it.
My UID is 103292 and they are in the 120000's now I think.. I need to be
able to log in with my UID cause they (ofcourse) dont have no_root_squash
So this isn't really a YPBIND issue (as I am able to ypbind) and maybe if I
could get some VP's or CEO's to log in they would be fine, but since our
UIDs are 1000 higer than our Employee ID, we are sorta limited here.
Any advice would be appreciated.

We are sorry, but we are not officially supporting the 2.4 kernel yet, and thus
not large UIDs/GIDs.
