I am running FreeBSD 4.8 stable and i am migrating a Linux box to FreeBSD. The problem is that i have usernames up to 32 characters (please don't ask me why).
I did a few things:
* changed #define MAXLOGNAME 33 in /usr/src/sys/sys/param.h
I did a buildworld, buildkernel, installkernel and installworld. After rebooting the max is still 16.
I know i am doing something wrong, but i don't know what it is.
