Re: Yum is updating /etc/shadow?

What is this all about?

if you compare "/etc/shadow" to "/etc/shadow.rpmnew" when it is there,
you will see that yum/rpm has added a program's name to "/etc/shadow"
when yum/rpm adds a new program that needs to be assigned an id.

this also happens to "/etc/group", "/etc/gshadow", and "/etc/passwd".

why "/etc/shadow.rpmnew" was removed is hard to answer.


peace out.
