[New: openFATE 314730] useradd -s should accept shell basename
Feature added by: Ned Ulbricht (ned_ulbricht)

Feature #314730, revision 1
Title: useradd -s should accept shell basename

openSUSE Distribution: Unconfirmed
Requester: Desirable

Requested by: Ned Ulbricht (ned_ulbricht)
Partner organization:

This proposed feature is one possible way to deal with Bug 796242 - "pcsc-lite:
preinstall scriptlet adds user scard with bad path for nologin shell".

Currently, the absolute location of the executable for system users' shells is
coded into rpm preinstall scriptlets scattered across packages throughout the
distro. I propose centralizing that knowledge into useradd.

Thus, for instance

* useradd -s nologin newaccount
* useradd -s dash newaccount

would both be acceptable and would result in a lookup of the correct executable
path before user account creation.
