Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 437390
user haldaemon is too long
Last modified: 2013-03-05 22:55:10 EST
Description of problem:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Client release 5.1 (Tikanga)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. ps auxww|grep hald
owned by UID 68
owned by user haldaemon
the user "haldaemon" that ships with the default /etc/passwd file is
longer than 8 characters so ps shows UID 68 instead of the username.
No, this is perfectly fine and not a bug. Also NOTABUG'ed this for Fedora;
search bugzilla for the discussion.
