I have noticed differences in /etc/groups lately.
Older files had the form group:*:
Newer files have the form group :x:
On my laptop yesterday, a groups.rpmnew was created with the form group::
I read the manual and it suggests that the latter form means no password.
What does all of this mean? What effect does the * or x have? If it is blank, what does it mean for a group to have no password? No password for login? Why would such a file be generated upon yum update for my laptop?
Can one have different settings for different groups in the same file? When would one use which setting?
