Description Ludovic Michoux 2000-02-26 09:34:46 UTC
I cannot change the owner of a directory if the username
has an underscore.
It works fine for the group, but not for the user.

chmod, of KDE gui can't do it as well.

extract :

bash# chown ccm_root ccm_root
bash# ls -la
total 9
drwxr-xr-x   8 root     root         1024 Feb 26 09:59 .
drwxr-xr-x  20 root     root         1024 Feb  5 11:07 ..
drwxr-xr-x   2 user1    ccm_root     1024 Feb 26 09:59 ccm_root
drwxr-xr-x   6 root     root         1024 Mar 21  1999 ftp
