Hi. Please forgive me for being dim, but I've read the following three threads,

http://forum.vectorlinux.com/index.php?topic=7031.0
http://forum.vectorlinux.com/index.php?topic=7008.0
http://forum.vectorlinux.com/index.php?topic=3693.0

but I still cannot figure out how to solve the VASM error I am receiving when I try to add a new user. I go to VASM, log in as superuser, go to user/adduser, and then enter in the name of the user I want to add, in all lower-case. Then I receive the same error as reported in the above three threads and the title of this one, namely, "User 'user' contains illegal characters (CAPITAL)."

The above-referenced posts hint at a solution mentioned somewhere, but for the life of me I can't identify the solution. I checked my /etc/profile.d/lang.sh file, but the only uncommented lines were:

export LANG=en_US

and

export LC_COLLATE=C

I tried commenting out the "export LC_COLLATE=C line and rebooted, but it made not difference. I still cannot add new users.

Will someone please advise me?

the file to check is /etc/profile.d/vasm.sh
look for a line at the bottom that looks like this
Code:
export LC_ALL=$LANG.UTF8
comment it out by adding a # in front so it looks like this
Code:
#export LC_ALL=$LANG.UTF8
