|0001103||CentOS-4||Other||public||2005-11-17 23:40||2011-10-05 16:56|
|Product Version||4.1 - i386|
|Target Version||Fixed in Version|
|Summary||0001103: newgrp fails with password|
|Description||As root, create a group and add a password|
# groupadd lusers
# gpasswd lusers
As a normal user, log in to the new group using the password
$ newgrp lusers
Password: [enter correct password]
newgrp: Permission denied.
|Additional Information||This fails on FC3 as well, however it works on FC4 with the latest shadow-utils installed.|
|Tags||No tags attached.|
|an updated shadow-utils was pushed out today to the update repositories, can you verify that the problem still persists ?|
I installed shadow-utils-4.0.3-58.RHEL4 and tried again.
The problem seems to be persisting.
|Compare to http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=569899|
Problem still exists for CentOS Linux release 6.0 (Final).
Do solve the problem I compiled a new rpm out of shadow-utils-220.127.116.11-13.fc15.src.rpm, coming with fedora15 and made an update with the new package.
Since EL-4 is in the "Production 3 Phase" of its lifetime upstream, this issue is likely never to be fixed.
See this link for info on fixes in the various phases:
Since the CentOS goal is an exact functionality rebuild, if the issues exists upstream, it will also exist in CentOS.
|This issue will likely not be fixed upstream, so will remain in CentOS as well.|
