Red face Is it possible to add a user without password in Slackware?


Sorry for so many questions


It doesn't seems to be possible to add a user without password in Slackware
Is there any way?
When I add a user without password
I just can't log in to that account

Generally it is possible, yes. You may need to edit passwd and shadow to make it happen.

Creating a user without password and logging in works fine here on Slackware 14.1, without fiddling with any files. How do you create that user?
