Thread: Service for user ... that does not exist?

  1. #1

    Question Service for user ... that does not exist?

    Hi!

    Just restarted the firewall via service manager **cough*** and saw on my way there is a service running for a user 435 which I don't know

    https://paste.opensuse.org/44850264

    and the user manager in YaST doesn't know him, too

    https://paste.opensuse.org/88130150


    What did I miss here?
    Kind regards

    Most likely the Set Filter option. A quicker way to find out:
    Code:
    grep 435 /etc/passwd

    Hi
    Installed a non openSUSE package that adds a system user (less than 1000) that is not defined by openSUSE.

    Hi Knurpht!


    Code:
    grep 435 /etc/passwd
    ..gives no output at all.

    Hi Malcolm!

    It's plain vanilla TW KDE from 2018 with Mozilla repo (and the security repo for the latest firewalld added yesterday, see thread in "Networking"). It does nothing else but Firefoxing the whole day nothing manually installed...

    On a second TW the latest firewalld installation did not result in a new user.

    Any way to find out what/who created this user? :-)
    Kind regards

    What does the following show?
    Code:
    genent passwd | grep 465

    The user ID from the first image you shared showed 465 (not 435).

    OMg, you are totally right! Now I get:

    Code:
    grep 465 /etc/passwd
    sddm:x:465:466:SDDM daemon:/var/lib/sddm:/bin/false
    vnc:x:464:465:user for VNC:/var/lib/empty:/sbin/nologin
    The user for the VNC server running on the machine?
    Kind regards

    Please, calm down and relax. Read, read again and reread before you jump to conclusions.

    Uid 465 has username sddm.

    I don't have this user on other TW installs. So what is it for? :-)
    Kind regards

    It says so in the comment in that line.

    Are you going to ask that about all the ~40 users defined in /etc/passwd?
