Description Miloslav Trmač 2011-06-28 00:37:34 EDT
Various code in system-config-users assumes that non-system user and group IDs start at a hard-coded value 500.  Please use [UG]ID_MIN from /etc/login.defs for this; we plan to change the boundary.

See attachment 510191 [details] for the proper way to parse /etc/login.defs.

Please let me know if you want me to prepare a complete patch.

Comment 1 Nils Philippsen 2011-06-28 04:58:38 EDT
What values should s-c-users assume if these keys are absent from /etc/login.defs? 500 or 1000?
Comment 2 Miloslav Trmač 2011-06-28 13:02:42 EDT
1000 would be probably better, that's the value shadow-utils (the "owner" of /etc/login.defs) uses.  It doesn't really matter much AFAICS.
