after I created a new account , why system displays"I have no name!"


After I login as root ,I created a new account named wjs01410907 .And then I used command passwd to creat that account's password.

I login with the new account and its password.
What surprised me is that the console displayed the information below!!!
Last login:Fri May 7 21:32:37 from 172.16.38.190
id:cannot find name for user ID 1005
id:cannot find name for user ID 1005
[I have no name!@Linux wjs01410907]$


why???????

by the way, I use Redhat

wjs01410907? why so many latters? try using less then 8 latters see if it helps,i think it does this becouse bash the shell type that rh uses has a limit to how many latters and numbers u can get in a name hope that helps u.

It is not true, because I tried again using another account named liurui.
I am really being bothered by this question!

Type "ls -al /etc/{passwd,group}". Both should have octal 0644 access rights. If changing rights doesn't work, log in as your ws.* or liu.* user and post the output of running "id".
