    Well, its monday.
    So I turned on the PC that has what I want.
    I did start it.
    And did get my hands on the keyboard and I typed:
    Code:
    cat /e<tab>libus<tab>
    to get
    Code:
    cat /etc/libuser.conf
    but I got a beep.
    The file /etc/libuser.conf doesnt exist...

    Cheers,
    Robin

    Ah, thats nice. Well I think its a really strage issue. Since why cant I make a user called '12' is it a Security Thread?
    Lets try to make a user called 'ff'.
    Can be done. So its not the Lenght. Its really the Number that isnt allowed.
    Lets try: 123456789.
    I get: Invallid.
    and 123456789f is Invalid aswell.

    Well any ideas?

    Cheers,
    Robin

    Gentoo has it's own non-standard useradd command then?
