I'm running Linux-PAM-0.72.

/etc/pam.d/kde looks like this:

------------------------------8<---------------------------------
#%PAM-1.0
auth       required     /lib/security/pam_pwdb.so shadow nullok
auth       required     /lib/security/pam_nologin.so
account    required     /lib/security/pam_pwdb.so
password   required     /lib/security/pam_cracklib.so type=user retry=3
password   required     /lib/security/pam_pwdb.so use_authtok # md5 shadow
session    required     /lib/security/pam_pwdb.so
