Adduser

Post by -Natas- » Tue Mar 09, 2004 6:27 pm

How do I add a user? On debian it is just adduser but that does not work on Gentoox. Also how can I change the password on the gentoox user? Thanks in advance for any help with this. :)

and you'll want
man passwd
to learn how to change passwords

to add a normal user you'll want something like

Code: Select all

useradd username -m -G users,wheel,audio -s /bin/bash
then to set their password (or to change someone elses)

Code: Select all

passwd username
