adduser problem

view story

https://bbs.archlinux.org – Thanks for the reply, jjacky. Yes, as the topic name and my text states, I am using adduser. I know it is a shell script, and on the Debian systems I've worked on, adduser creates a group with the same name as the username, just like useradd does. I assumed that adduser populated its defaults from the login.defs file, but that seems not to be the case. For when I change the value of GROUP in login.defs, adduser continues to put the user in the group 'users' unless a different group is specified and already created.Still, your reply has sent me considering in the right direction.
