Re: login id's with more than 8 char

Hello,

With these releases it is not supported to use user names longer than 8 characters,
and also not really recommended to bypass the existing length checks or to override
8 character username limitation.

You may also read man 4 passwd.

The following fields have size limitations as noted:

+ Login name field can be no longer than 8 characters;

+ Results are unpredictable if these fields are longer than the
limits specified above.

Hope it helps,
Albertino
