Description web 1999-10-28 04:33:18 UTC
when editing/adding normal users, the additional groups field takes only 200 characters and truncates the rest, but doenot show this in the field (you may type many more characters than this) After removing groups over the 200 character limit and quiting/saving - the group file must be edited manually to include the missing additional group information.

Jacques, I assume this was fixed along with the blank group problem, correct?
Comment 2 Dale Lovelace 1999-12-02 20:14:59 UTC
This is (fixed?) in linuxconf-1.16r10. You can't type past 200 characters in the "supplemental groups" field. This version of Linuxconf should be in the next Rawhide release.
Comment 3 Michael K. Johnson 1999-12-02 21:31:59 UTC
Reopened until we actually release linuxconf-1.16r10-1 or later as an errata update.
Comment 4 Michael K. Johnson 1999-12-03 01:37:59 UTC
Jacques says that the interface will change to be able to add more groups in the future. In linuxconf-1.16r10, the 200 character limit will be better enforced so that typing won't be lost. The short-term workaround is to use groupmod until linuxconf has fuller support for editing group lists. Note that NGROUP_MAX is set to 32 in Linux and is not likely to change in the forseeable future, so a user can be in a maximum of 32 suplementary groups.
