adduser and passwd problems
I have a problem when I make a non-privileged account with adduser.
It makes the account fine and all is well until I reboot the slug.
After a reboot, I can no longer login with the non-privileged account.
When I check passwd, the hash has been replaced with an "x"
This is annoying .. can anyone provide some insight?
Here is an excerpt from /var/log/messages
The failed loging area a result of the "x" hash. Then I enabled
telnet and came in as root. What is the deal with the shadow error?
