The -p option expects an already encrypted password... not the password you want to type in. Add the user without the -p option, and then as root, execute: passwd zameer3

That will change the password for zameer3 without having to encrypt it yourself.

Hi Dark_Helmet...
Thnx for Ur Useful reply......
I got little bit success ... I followed you... as u mentioned.... but amazingly this error was coming and not able to login just look at once...

' Could not open or create the file "/home/zameer/.gconf-test-locking file" ..
this indicates there may be a problem with your configuration , as many as
programs will need to create files in your home directory... the error was
"permission denied" ' .Error no . 13

what to do ? any help would be appreciate...

zameer ahmed syed.

The example you gave listed /home/zameer3 as the home directory. So I don't know why you're getting an error for /home/zameer unless you executed a different command than what you listed previously.

Some things to check though:
A) does the /home/zameer directory exist? If not, create it
B) does the user zameer have ownership and write permissions on the directory? If you're not sure, execute these commands:
chown zameer /home/zameer
chmod 700 /home/zameer

What command exactly did you type in to create the user, and what program are you trying to run that gives you this error?

You misunderstand, I want to see the command you typed in to create the user. I want you to copy the command exactly like you typed into the computer, and put in in a reply to this thread. I want to see each command you type from the point of creating a user to logging in.

Well, you still haven't told me how you're logging in: into a graphical environment or text, and you also didn't list every command from creating the user to logging in.

That aside, all I can do is offer this sequence of commands to create a user manually:
groupadd zameer99
mkdir -p /home/zameer99
chmod 777 /home/zameer99
useradd -d /home/zameer99 -g zameer99 -s /bin/bash zameer99
chown -R zameer99:zameer99 /home/zameer99
chmod 770 /home/zameer99
passwd zameer99
enter password


Then completely log out of the system (perhaps even reboot). Then try logging in with zameer99. If that does not get past your error message then my hands are tied. I don't know enough about what programs you're running or what you're trying to do to give any more advice with one exception:

Use Red Hat's User/Group Manager to create the user if you still have problems. If that fails, then there is something wrong with some configuration file in your system.

Good luck.

Are you using Slackware?

If so, when using adduser do not add the rest of the information to the command, just type adduser and then hit enter. You will then be asked a series of questions about the user. If you want to do it in one command from the command line use useradd followed by the option.
