    adduser trouble


    Im trying to make a new user account, and am having some trouble. I log in as root, and then at a shell prompt, I type:
    Code:
    adduser -p abcdef alex
    This should create a user account called "alex" with a password of abcdef, right? When I do this, it creates the account, but it wont accept abcdef as the password. What am I missing??

    ps. abcdef is not my real password :P
