Description Chris Ricker 2001-09-03 09:55:41 EDT
the xfs user entry in /etc/passwd lists /bin/false as the login shell.  now
that /sbin/nologin exists it should be used instead

see also #52989
Comment 1 Mike A. Harris 2001-09-18 03:35:56 EDT
This is not mission critical, and making the change would prevent current
packaging from easily being used as erratum for older releases.  I am
deferring this change for possible inclusion in future major release.
Comment 2 Mike A. Harris 2002-01-28 06:36:12 EST
Added to current rawhide development.  Will appear soon.
