You need to add the shadow argument to the pam_pwdb.so line in /etc/pam.d/passwd, so it looks something like this: auth required /lib/security/pam_pwdb.so shadow nullok account required /lib/security/pam_pwdb.so password required /lib/security/pam_cracklib.so retry=3 password required /lib/security/pam_pwdb.so shadow use_authtok nullok -- Frank Sweetser rasmusin at wpi.edu fsweetser at blee.net | PGP key available paramount.res.wpi.net RedHat 5.0 Linux 2.0.33 i586 | at public servers Coach: Can I draw you a beer, Norm?
