Re: Illegal user

Hi Stav,

Thanks for your assistance... The webhost had put my account onto a 64-bit server... In trying to sort out the "Illegal User" message, I asked their support to try and run DOSEMU as root which they did and got a "vm86plus not available" and then they mentioned to me that it was on a 64 bit server... They moved it over to a 32-bit server and everything works fine...

Sorry to send you out chasing a red herring...

No, that won't work, don't try.
Run the attached test program instead, please.


#include <stdio.h>
#include <sys/types.h>
#include <pwd.h>
#include <unistd.h>
#include <stdlib.h>

int main()
 printf("%p\n", getpwuid(getuid()));
 system("ls -l /etc/passwd");
 return 0;
