Description Milos Malik 2008-07-16 12:21:49 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.8.1.15) Gecko/20080702 Fedora/2.0.0.15-1.fc8 Firefox/2.0.0.15

Description of problem:
The utility is able to add an user to a group, but it's not able to remove the user from the group. The only way how to accomplish this is to purge all users from the group (groupmems -p -g tegr).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
shadow-utils-4.0.18.1-22.fc8

How reproducible:
Always


Steps to Reproduce:
# groupadd tegr
# grep tegr /etc/group
tegr:x:501:
# useradd teus
# grep teus /etc/passwd
teus:x:501:502::/home/teus:/bin/bash
# groupmems -a teus -g tegr
# echo $?
0
# grep tegr /etc/group
tegr:x:501:teus
# groupmems -d teus -g tegr
# echo $?
0
# grep tegr /etc/group
tegr:x:501:teus
#

Actual Results:
groupmems -d does not remove the user from the group

Expected Results:
groupmems -d removes the user from the group

This is already fixed from F-9 on (shadow-utils-4.1.2).
