4 hmm, sorry. I've no comments to the features but I've a problem
5 to add my personal useraccount to a gentoo system. I've posted
6 the question to the gentoo-user maillinglist but got no answer.
7 Perhaps someone on the dev list can give me a answer. My normal
8 useraccount uses a dot (f. e.
9 useradd -c "Foo Bar" -d /home/ -u 500 -g 200 -s /bin/bash
10 useradd: invalid user name ''
12 This is a example. My real username has 8 characters (with the
13 dot). Whitout the dot, useradd works fine.
15 Does anyone know where I must drive the screw? /etc/login.defs
16 isn't it. Are the pam modules denying a dot?
18 Thanks, Volker
