I'm using Fedora 18_i686 and I need to add a new user. I have tried
useradd -p password username
but when I try to do
it does not prompt for a password and when I do
the new user in not there. I have read the manual for useradd to no avail, unless I'm missing something. The directory /home/user is created and all seems well but it isn't prompting for a password. I really need to get this done because I want to lend the laptop to a friend for a while. I tried using the GUI "Administration > Users and Groups" but I get the same results. Thanks ahead of time.
