Did you possibly delete it from /etc/passwd before you did everything else? It's not safe to edit /etc/password directly. If you issue vipw, does the user still show up? if so, delete him there and /etc/passwd should be regenerated correctly. > [EMAIL PROTECTED] userdel miller > pw: user 'miller' does not exist: No such file or directory > [EMAIL PROTECTED] miller > Matching password entry: > > miller:*:1038:1003::0:0:Thomas Miller:/home/miller:/bin/csh > > Is this the entry you wish to remove? y > Remove user's home directory (/home/miller)? y > Removing user (miller): home passwdpw: user 'miller' does not exist: No > such file or directory > . > [EMAIL PROTECTED] > Username: miller > Full name: Thomas Miller > Uid (Leave empty for default): > Login group [miller]: users > Login group is users.
