Last week we upgraded our 5.2 system with Kernel 2.0.36 to 2.2.11
Everything went OK (only a few solvable problems).
Today I created a new user. He should normal first change his password to
keep access to the system.

[f.steinhauser@popeye linux-2.2.11]$ passwd
Changing password for f.steinhauser
(current) UNIX password:
New UNIX password:
Retype new UNIX password:
passwd: Permission denied
In the syslog I get this message:
Aug 30 14:33:46 popeye PAM_pwdb: cannot update default database for
Can you help me with this. As root I can change the password for a user but
this is not what I want (of course)
