    Default Incorrect Login


    Hi

    I have merely set up aminimal install with my netbook. Anyway, no troubles logging in asroot, but when I make a new user and attempt to login like them Imerely acquire the "Login incorrect" error. I am surely thepassword is correct, while the secure log displays an authenticationerror. Am I losing a permission somewhere?

    Hi,

    When you add users what are the steps you bring? If you require to the passwords can be modified, but I require to make certain that you are not missing something first.

    useradd test
    usermod -p [pwd] test

    Shell is added automatically I think. I have attempted adding the user to the sudoers group usermod -a -G wheel which does not assist. Modifying the password is not a problem, but I have already put it easy in order to rule out human error. .

    Hi*

    what occurs if you merely apply the commands useradd, then passwd? I am not say that they your way would not work but I have always only applied useradd and passwd.

    Applying passwd fixed the matter. Now realizing what a stupid question that was.

    No your question is a valid one. If you are not applied to applying linux then the command pwd creates sense. Still the command pwd tells you the present working directory.
