Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 748314
Group Memberships are not respected
Last modified: 2011-10-24 13:09:04 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
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
membership in /etc/group exists, but `groups` doesn't reflect it.
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?
Thanks for looking at this.
Yes, this is a duplicate of #745675.
yum update fixed it.
