10.4: A fix for users disappearing from the login window
Authored by: leenoble_uk on Jul 29, '05 10:51:45AM

Can you still log in as these missing users if you use option-(was it right arrow?) to get to the username/password box at the login screen?

I don't have Tiger yet and was frustrated when the ability to hide user accounts by changing the real_name attribute in Jaguar was disabled in Panther. This sounds like it would be a good solution for purposely hiding accounts at the login screen.

So, I said ... well, I can't actually remember exactly what I said. But it was one of the most enormously cruel and frighteningly witty put downs ever.

Yes - if I set the login screen to username and password fields, I could log into the accounts just fine. The accounts appeared to be working fine, except that the didn't appear in the login window list or in the fast user switching list.
