Adding users...


I know how to add users in the Yast mask but...how do you do it from the command line?

I'm assuming you are able to use the useradd command, being in bash. If Suse is like the distros I'm used to, you can run
#useradd <name>
to add that user to the system. Run
#passwd <name> to give them a login password to.

Hope that's what you were wondering.

Some other useful stuff, along those lines:

userdel -r <username> to delete the user *and thier home directory* from the system

usermod <options> <username> to change certain things about their account, e.g. group membership, etc.
