Pls help. After pacman -Syu i cant use groupadd. After 'groupadd test' command appearing this lines:
]$ groupadd test password: Input old NIX password: Input new NIX password:
That is it? And that i should downgrade to force it work?
You do this as root, don't you?
You can always add a group manually by editing /etc/group.
Yes, i'm root. I reintall system and did this command : all works good. Next i did pacman -Syu : problem, that i wrote in first message.
I want to understand that happens, becouse of i dont like then something works bad or dont work.
I solve the problem by downgrade shadow (4.0.5->4.0.4). Anyone have some problem?
I'm seeing that problem as well.
Actually, I'm getting:
# groupadd test Password: Enter new UNIX password: Retype new UNIX password:
It actually changes my root password, which means obviously that it's behaving like passwd. Both commands are provided by the shadow package, but the programs result in different md5sums, meaning they're not exactly the same.
I just emailed the developper to find out if this is in fact an upstream problem.
After you've entered the root password, the group gets created, you just Ctrl-C out of the "new UNIX password" prompt.
