Description okosamastarr 1999-05-29 19:26:13 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 ???
Comment 1 David Lawrence 1999-06-01 19:11:59 EDT
I have verified this to be true.
Comment 2 Michael K. Johnson 1999-07-13 10:25:59 EDT
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.
