Description eb 1999-08-25 12:06:11 UTC
with  glipc-2.1.1.-6.rpm  Distribution: BlueSky
downloaded from on june 15
it is not possible to su.
I always get the message:

initgroups: invalid argument

with the old glibc-2.0.7 everything is ok..
I am running DLD 6.0
number of groups in /etc/group: 29

Comment 1 Cristian Gafton 1999-08-30 01:04:59 UTC
I can not reproduce this problem here. I am not sure if the glibc rpms
from Red Hat will be a perfect fit for DLD, though.
