Re: Problemns after updating from 6.1.4 to 6.1.5

I carefully merge my password and groups files...  :)

As I reported earlier, I forgot the -p option for tar, so it didn't set any [SG]uid permission bits.

well i know i was asked if i wanted to update /etc/passwd which would
have messed up my users and passwords, and there was one other file too
that looked like it contained some auth info, which i didn't update.
are you sure you didn't update those files during etcupdate?
