Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 70399
User names limited to 8 chars
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:45:03 EDT
Description of Problem:
Under "Account Configuration", "Add" user, the user name field is limited to 8
chars. After install, I use adduser to create accounts with names longer than
8 chars, so why not during install?
The POSIX specification limits you to 8 characters plus a null terminator.
