Create a group on Linux Red Hat

Dear all,

We were trying to create a Group (for users) using the graphical interface but the process takes very long time without success. After we open the graphical tool and make all the selections (group name, group id ... ) we click on next, the tool hangs and stays there.

However it works fine using the Command Line 'groupadd'.
Our system is Linux Red Hat V4 U4.

Thanks for your help.

Re: Create a group on Linux Red Hat

try:

# up2date -u system-config-users
"The difference between me and you? I will read the man page." and "Respect the hat." and "You could just do a search on ITRC, you don't need to start a thread on a topic that's been answered 100 times already." Oh, and "What. no points???"

Re: Create a group on Linux Red Hat

GUI tools tends to hang if the network configuration, specifically name resolution, is not correct.

Check if the /etc/hosts file contains the IP and host name that corresponds with the:

ifconfig -a
hostname

commands.

Also, you should try webmin, it's a great tool.
