How can i add the "groupadd" command?


Hi to all!

I need your help, i'm a newbie with linux..


I'm trying to install Trend Micro VirusScan on a linux-based firewall (Smoothwall 2.0 b7) but i need a special command for the installation(groupadd) that isn't present in this kernel (2.4)

I can add the "groupadd" command? And if i can, where i can find this command?

thanks for your help, bye!

It's just a standard command. It's in /usr/sbin, probably - you may just not be root or typing the full path.

no, in /usr/sbin there isn't the groupadd command.

this is a distro version of linux (smoothwall 2.0 b7 - kernel 2.4), most commands were "deleted"...i think for security or something else

how can i "install" this command??

Oh. Weirdness. Um. I don't know if Smoothwall has any kind of package system. I guess just hit sourceforge or freshmeat or wherever and look for shadow package or shadowutils or whatever. If there's a smoothwall thing, install it, if not compile it. Though I suspect Smoothwall doesn't come with a compiler either. Double posting is against the rules generally but maybe you'd have better luck in Security. Sorry I can't be of more help. (And, of course, I don't know if you just checked that directory, but it may be somewhere else, like /sbin or anywhere. Try a 'locate' if you didn't. Or an 'slocate', I suppose. *g*)
