Re: [K12OSN] Adding and removing users without being in root



Log into root user in the graphical login, go to "Install Additional Software", then click on the icon to install Webmin, which runs a script to install the latest Webmin RPM.

Works great on FC1, and FC2.

It won't work on FC1 and higher, though to add users. . .

You can try it but it will probably fail. I have turned it in to bugtraq and hopefully a fix is in the works. . .

Is WEBMIN in the K12LTSP or do I need to go look for it some place? I'm not the most savy Linux person so a little bit more detailed response would help.
Thanks again
Pat

Webmin is definitely the answer to this.

I have a teacher who has three stand alone machines running K12LTSP 4.2. I want to know if I can give her access to the add-remove users GUI with out giving her access to root or the root password. If I can do this can someone please enlighten me on how to go about it.
Thanks

You might wish to consider the use of sudo for this. However, this may end up giving her the ability to create her own username with a UID of 0, which would give her root.

Hi John,

You might try installing WEBMIN and creating a limited administrator account with user priviledges.....
