Password Problems With useradd
I am running Sarge, and this is the first time I have tried to add new users.
useradd -m fred
and fred was created for me. I could then su - fred from root and it changed straight to fred without asking me for a password. When I tried to set a password by just typing "passwd" as fred I was asked for the current password, which I didn't have, so now the only way I can be fred is to su from root.
I then tried:
useradd -m -p bob bob
and the same thing happened. So now I need to know what I did wrong and how to fix bob and fred so they can login as themselves, because according to the useradd man page, I don't know where I went wrong.
