I tried the simple act of adding a user to my system. It failed, repeatingly asking me for a user name I had already given. You should not have to have the brain of Einstein in order to put a new user on your system. People like me, users of what I consider to be a very superior operating system, that just lacks manners. As a matter of fact, immediately after sending that email I started on writing a decent mechanism for adding users. If that is negative PR then I am sorry. A job that should take a few minutes, didn't.
When finished I will submit it through the normal channels. It is no good pretending that FreeBSD is a user-friendly system, it is not. As soon as people start paying attention to these fripperies, the sooner it will be realised that it is streets ahead of most other OS'es. -- Regards Cliff Sarginson The Netherlands [ This mail has been checked as virus-free ] To Unsubscribe: send mail to [EMAIL PROTECTED] with "unsubscribe freebsd-questions" in the body of the message
