Re: mkpasswd: [5] Access is denied.

The strace output I provided was for a command that failed. I just forgot to mention that running
strace --output=mkpasswd.strace.txt mkpasswd -u canning -d
produces the following message:
mkpasswd: [5] Access is denied
as well as producing the strace output in the file that I attached to my original message.

Can you provide strace output from when you are running `mkpasswd -d'? As
what you provided was for a command that worked (?).
