LinuxConf seems to have 2 bugs with users who have more than 3 optional 
groups :
- the first line of the groups seems to be too short and truncates groups 
- if the user is in more than 3 optional groups the linuxconf says that 
the groups are invalid

Can`t reproduce with linuxconf 1.22. The line can scroll quite far. If there are
many groups
more line are added to the dialog. Which linuxconf version is this ? If 1.22
does not work for you
can you send me your /etc/group file.
Comment 2 Matthieu Araman 2000-11-22 18:10:11 EST
can't reproduce with linuxconf 1.22.
It could be a gnome-linuxconf problem, can you reproduce it with 
linuxconf --text ?
Comment 3 Need Real Name 2000-11-22 18:10:12 EST
I'm using the linuxconf bundled with RH7 : version 1.19
My bug description was not precise enough but the trouble is when I open the 
The group dialogs are ok.
But I'm not able to change any property on the user themselves because 
linuxconf throws me an error about invalid group.
When I remove some groups from the user it's possible again to save the changes.
Comment 4 Need Real Name 2000-11-22 18:13:54 EST
yeah I tried with linuxconf 1.19 --text and I can't reproduce the bug this way.
The bug is specific to gnome linuxconf.
Comment 5 Brent Fox 2002-06-05 12:15:11 EDT
Closing because we don't ship linuxconf anymore
