group limit

hi,

i have in my /etc/group an unix group full.
i need to add new user in this group.
users need to have the same gid and the same name...
is it possible ?
can i create a concatenation with an other group or something else ?

The lines can get very large. We have one with over 100 users. That line is 876 characters long. Are you sure yours is full? How can you tell?

But I once had luck with something like this...
Code:
adm::4:root,adm,daemon
admxx::4:more,user,names

The second line just has the same gid as the first. I got away with it so it may be worth a try.
