Summary: Utilities for managing shadow password files and user/group accounts.
The shadow-utils package includes the necessary programs for
converting UNIX password files to the shadow password format, plus
programs for managing user and group accounts.  The pwconv command
converts passwords to the shadow password format.  The pwunconv command
unconverts shadow passwords and generates an npasswd file (a standard
UNIX password file).  The pwck command checks the integrity of
password and shadow files.  The lastlog command prints out the last
login times for all users.  The useradd, userdel and usermod commands
are used for managing user accounts.  The groupadd, groupdel and
groupmod commands are used for managing group accounts.






* Wed Jan 19 2000 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer <bero(at)>

  - libtoolize
* Wed Sep 22 1999 Cristian Gafton <gafton(at)>
  - fix segfault for userdel when the primary group for the user is not
* Tue Sep 21 1999 Cristian Gafton <gafton(at)>
  - Serial: 1 because now we are using 19990827 (why the heck can't they have
    a normal version just like everybody else?!)
  - ported all patches to the new code base
* Thu Apr 15 1999 Bill Nottingham <notting(at)>
  - SIGHUP nscd from usermod, too
* Fri Apr 09 1999 Michael K. Johnson <johnsonm(at)>
  - added usermod password locking from Chris Adams <cadams(at)>
* Thu Apr 08 1999 Bill Nottingham <notting(at)>
  - have things that modify users/groups SIGHUP nscd on exit
* Wed Mar 31 1999 Michael K. Johnson <johnsonm(at)>
  - have userdel remove user private groups when it is safe to do so
  - allow -f to force user removal even when user appears busy in utmp
* Tue Mar 23 1999 Preston Brown <pbrown(at)>
  - edit out unused CHFN fields from login.defs.
* Sun Mar 21 1999 Cristian Gafton <gafton(at)> 
  - auto rebuild in the new build environment (release 7)
* Wed Jan 13 1999 Bill Nottingham <notting(at)>
  - configure fix for arm
* Wed Dec 30 1998 Cristian Gafton <gafton(at)>
  - build against glibc 2.1
* Fri Aug 21 1998 Jeff Johnson <jbj(at)>
  - Note that /usr/sbin/mkpasswd conflicts with /usr/bin/mkpasswd;
    one of these (I think /usr/sbin/mkpasswd but other opinions are valid)
    should probably be renamed.  In any case, mkpasswd.8 from this package
    needs to be installed. (problem #823)
* Fri May 08 1998 Prospector System <bugs(at)>
  - translations modified for de, fr, tr
* Tue Apr 21 1998 Cristian Gafton <gafton(at)>
  - updated to 980403
  - redid the patches
* Tue Dec 30 1997 Cristian Gafton <gafton(at)>
  - updated the spec file
  - updated the patch so that new accounts created on shadowed system won't
    confuse pam_pwdb anymore ('!!' default password instead on '!')
  - fixed a bug that made useradd -G segfault
  - the check for the ut_user is now patched into configure
* Thu Nov 13 1997 Erik Troan <ewt(at)>
  - added patch for XOPEN oddities in glibc headers
  - check for ut_user before checking for ut_name -- this works around some
    confusion on glibc 2.1 due to the utmpx header not defining the ut_name
    compatibility stuff. I used a gross sed hack here because I couldn't make
    automake work properly on the sparc (this could be a glibc 2.0.99 problem
    though). The utuser patch works fine, but I don't apply it.
  - sleep after running autoconf
* Thu Nov 06 1997 Cristian Gafton <gafton(at)>
  - added forgot lastlog command to the spec file
* Sun Oct 26 1997 Cristian Gafton <gafton(at)>
  - obsoletes adduser

  - modified groupadd; updated the patch
* Fri Sep 12 1997 Cristian Gafton <gafton(at)>
  - updated to 970616
  - changed useradd to meet RH specs
  - fixed some bugs
* Tue Jun 17 1997 Erik Troan <ewt(at)>
  - built against glibc
