    SubjectRe: admutil problems
        From: M Sweger <mikesw@whiterose.net>

    The admutils pkg at most sunsites is still v1.18 whereas the
    admutils pkg at ftp://ftp.daimi.aau.dk is v1.24

    OK - I'll check versions and update where necessary.

    Another problem I'm encountering with passwd is that the setpwname
    uses the libc link(), unlink() and rename() functions. Presently
    with the Linux v2.2.x and libc v2.07pre7-v2.0.112 and v2.1 there

    Ah - I do not understand why this has not been plastered with
    big fat letters all over 2.2.x Changes:

    DO NOT USE 2.2.[0-5] WITH FAT, VFAT, UMSDOS. IT IS BROKEN.

    (More generally, there is no reason to suppose that 2.2.x is stable
    for any filesystem other than ext2. However, in the vfat case the
    problems are probably well understood, and Alexander Viro has
    produced patches that you may try, maybe at
    ftp://ftp.math.psu.edu/pub/viro/rename+fat-patch-8.gz .)

    Let me cc the Changes maintainer.

    Best regards, Andries
