cannot find name for group ID

Reported by: acr31 Owned by: um_support

It looks like the unix group for my account has not had a name set up properly.

Reproducible by running:

groups acr31

Output is:

acr31 : groups: cannot find name for group ID 199

This seems to cause an error in the startup script for umui:

acr31@puma:/home/acr31> umui
Error in startup script: acr31 : 199
groups: cannot find name for group ID 199
    while executing
"exec groups $user"
    invoked from within
"lindex [exec groups $user] 2"
    invoked from within
"set group [lindex [exec groups $user] 2]"
    (file "/home/umui/umui/ghui2.0/tcl/entry.tcl" line 28)

Hi Andrew,

Well diagnosed! I'm not sure what happened here as the group is automatically set to users (100) in the user creation script. I've changed you over to the users group and a fresh login to puma should see you in that group now.
