Re: Account with only number

Hi, I have a problem on Fedora Core 5 when I try to create a user with only digit (without letters), I have a waring (for security reason) but after that I choose ok the user isn't created but I haven't error message.

adduser 8888

seems to work for me without errors.

But numeric user names seems like a bad idea.

What if I have another user with
a UID of 8888 and I do a

chown 8888 file

who is the owner then?
