I've installed the shadow package Shadow-3.3.2 from Sunsite. The system
is Linux-1.1.62, once upon a time it was an SLS-1.0[3?] distribution,
but serious changes have happened since then.
I can't add any new users.
creates a passwd and shadow file entry, with backup files
passwd- and shadow-
but the new user isn't acknowledged as existing. Any clues as to why?
When I use userdel, the files are unchanged, claiming
user newbie does not exist, but files passwd.lock and shadow.lock
are left behind.
Thanks in advance,
