Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 3148
userinfo does not work...
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:50 EDT
starting userinfo 2 change finger Info fails with an
"unknown Error" after execution. correct password was
applied. Maybe has sometinh to do with MD5 PW ???
I have verified this to be true.
I do not think that this has anything to do with MD5
passwords, as I have replicated it without MD5 passwords.
I created a debugging version of the userhelper binary
which is giving the "Unknown error" and then it started
to work; it has continued to work even when I reinstalled
the old usermode rpm that had previously not worked.
I'm looking for more reports of this behaviour. If you
can reproduce it, please comment here and include a description
of how your user database is set up: in particular, I'd like
to know whether you are using shadow and whether you are
using NIS, but any other possibly pertinent information you
can think of would also be helpful.
