Ok, now what??


I got my system installed and everything seems to run ok, but I cann't figure out how to add users, remove users, add users to existing groups, make new groups, etc. I figure there should be some graphical thing to do this, but I'll be damned if I can find it.
I am running fedora core 4

Any help would be really apprieciated

Although the following instructions are for working at the command line instead of through a GUI, I think that you may find it useful. I think it provides a decent explantion for the various steps of setting up users for a system.

Happy hunting,

Menu-->System Settings-->Users and Groups

Check if the system-config-users rpm package is installed also, as root from the console or xterm session type;

rpm -q system-config-users

If available then from the console or xterm session type;

system-config-users

Did you install KDE or Gnome?

Sorry for this post, I had said the same thing as the previous post, only just a few seconds after the fact.

OMG! Right there in front of my face. Thanx for pointing it out

Ok, now that I can do that, here is the problem I'm trying to fix. I cann't sudo as my user. I get the error "user is not in the sudoers list".

You need to create a wheel group (if needed) and add yourself to this group and edit the /etc/sudoers file;

# Samples
%me ALL=/sbin/mount /cdrom,/sbin/umount /cdrom
%me ALL=/sbin/mount /floppy,/sbin/umount /floppy
# %users localhost=/sbin/shutdown -h now
