A question about changing a user name...
I'm running Slackware 12.0. I have a user named glenn with a home dir /home/glenn and is using /bin/bash. I want to change the name from glenn to glen. What exactly do I need to do? I want to keep the same ownership on all the files that glenn owns.
1. Change user glenn to glen in /etc/passwd
2. Change user glenn to glen in /etc/group
3. mv /home/glenn /home/glen
Would that work?
