Thread: group id problem

  1. group id problem

    [root@mypc ~]#id user1
    uid=500(user1) gid=500(user1) groups=500(user1),422(cvs)

    [root@mypc ~]# exit

    [user1@mypc ~]$ id
    uid=500(user1) gid=500(user1) groups=500(user1)

    I cant get user1 to show up as a member of the cvs group (except when id is
    run as root)

    /etc/group shows:
    user1:x:500:user1
    cvs:x:422:cvs,user1

    What am I missing?
    Thanks
    Eric

    Dumb question: Have you logged out as user1 and logged back
    in since adding the user to the group? Changes in the group
    file don't take effect for existing processes.
