Adding user adds the user…but not really - Missing from User Manager



  • End result desired = Users added

    I don't know what is going on here. The gui will not show users added, but will error if I attempt to create them twice saying the user is already in the system. Checking 'config.xml' shows no such user added (I can duplicate an existing user and it will show in User Manager but isn't real). The 'passwd' file will show the user added. Restarts accomplish nothing. Delete the entry in 'passwd' and I can use the GUI to re add the same user with same results in an insanity loop.

    What is going on HERE. GUI don gon broke or som thang. Help?

    That is telling you the user is reserved, not already in use.

    Did you try to add that username to /etc/passwd manually or something?

    I did but this occurred beforehand.

    Do a fresh install and stop messing with /etc/passwd.
