Question Unable to create home directory in Open Suse 11.3


When i am adding a user using "useradd -d /home/test test" or "useradd test", it is now creating the home directory, whereas when i am using the graphical mode and going through several menu options, i am getting the home directory. Dont know what is missing.

Hi,

You need the -m option too: useradd -m -d /home/test test

Also have a look at the man page.

Hope this helps.
