whoami: unknown uid 1000
When I log in my telnet server (mini2440 board) I'm getting a 'no user' problem. (Kernel 2.6.32-2).
$ telnet 192.168.1.230
> login: eduardo
> Password: *****
This happens every time that I add a new user on the system.
The group is correctly shown on the last line of /etc/group file:
User "root" is OK, but the "eduardo" user not.
Is there any other file on the linux system that stores the uid's of the users?
What are the permissions on /etc/passwd ? They should be 644.
I can't believe I missed that.
I thought that the problem was the permission, then, I set the permission 777, but that didn't solve.
But with 644 it's fine. Thanks AlucardZero!
More info about /etc/passwd file could be find here: http://www.cyberciti.biz/faq/underst...d-file-format/
Is there any explanation about why telnet the system doesn't read the user id when the permission is wrong (777 for example)?
