Description Justin Brown 2011-10-24 01:31:01 EDT
Description of problem:
No matter what I do, the system will not respect my group memberships.

During installation, I made the primary account part of the administrators group (wheel). After installation, I get error messages that I am not in the sudoers file. 

Check /etc/group, I find

However, the system does not recognize this
[root@thebe ~]# groups justin
justin : justin

I have repeatedly tried `usermod -aG wheel justin` to no avail.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Name        : coreutils
Arch        : x86_64
Version     : 8.12
Release     : 2.fc16
Size        : 13 M

How reproducible:
Rebooted several times and have run updates

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install F16 w/ Btrfs for / (not sure if Btrfs is causing part of the problem)
2. Try to sudo
3. Observe that group memberships are not respected
Actual results:
membership in /etc/group exists, but `groups` doesn't reflect it.

Expected results:
entries in /etc/group should match the system groups.

Thanks for report - however likely a duplicate of glibc bug #745675 ... could you please check your glibc version?
Comment 2 Justin Brown 2011-10-24 13:09:04 EDT

Yes, this is a duplicate of #745675.
