    "groupadd" and "tree" utilities are nowh


    I know I could add a group on Linux simply
    by editing /etc/group. But where is "groupadd"?? It is not on my linux system (did
    a "find" through my whole linux system and it's nowhere (not even in the usual
    paths such as /usr/sbin, /sbin..where tools + binaries are located.
    Anyway, "man groupadd" confirms there's no groupadd) and it is nowhere
    on the linux install cd rom..and I find it nowhere to download on the internet!
    Is it part of a package of tools? If yes, which one??

    As for the utility "tree", I guess I can find it on the net,

    try looking for this package (this is what it seems to be on my gentoo system):
    Code:
    usermode-utilities
    that would be my guess... or something very similar..
    Their code will be beautiful, even if their desks are buried in 3 feet of crap. - esr
