I don't use freebsd-update, so I'm just trying to figure it out from reading the program. [freebsd-update is mostly just a shell script] > What is the proper way to handle this ?

I'm not sure what the proper way is; there's certainly code in there to update the databases automatically, so you *shouldn't* have to do anything. To do the same thing manually, you can use pwd_mkdb(8). When you edit the password database with vipw(8), this is handled for you. I'd recommend trying to reproduce the problem on a spare machine, so we can understand it better. -- Lowell Gilbert, embedded/networking software engineer, Boston area http://be-well.ilk.org/~lowell/ _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
