creating a group and adding users
Posted on 2002-05-29
I'm trying to follow a CVS tutorial on my
Linux(red hat 7.2) machine
which is connected to a network. I created a group in /usr/local directory and want to add my self to the group I just created. I tried to do this as root via:
adduser sean -g cvs-user
and it gives me a message user already exists. I've verified the group cvs-user has been created, but I can't add myself to it. I don't know if this is some kind of conflict with the network file system or what?
when I type "group" as me it just gives one group which is
the group all users of the network are in.
