The suse-ncc User

Got a question about the purpose of suse-ncc:x:106:110:Novell Customer Center User:/var/lib/YaST2/suse-ncc-fakehome:/bin/bash, and Google did not know, so I asked the usual suspects.

Answer: It comes from yast2-registration.rpm and is used to switch away from root when we spawn the web browser and let you register your SUSE Linux Enterprise product.

Thanks, mc.
