Hi!

The usermin module chfn is not able to change user details
anymore on my SuSE 7.3 system.

Problem is in /usr/libexec/usermin/chfn/suse-linux-lib.pl

usermin wants to find the chfn version with chfn -v. But this option
is not possible on SuSE 7.3.

> chfn -v

chfn: invalid option -- v

Usage: chfn [ -f full_name ] [ -r room_no ] [ -w work_ph ] [ -h
home_ph ]

And because of this response, usermin wants to use the second
usage methid, which is wrong and results in the message:

Failed to change details : chfn: invalid option -- p Usage: chfn [ -f
full_name ] [ -r room_no ] [ -w work_ph ] [ -h home_ph ] [ -o other ]
[ user ]

Greets,

Daniel
