Re: [Fwd: PAM Critical error, but no logging]



Hi,

This is the actual problem :

stat("/var/cache/cracklib/cracklib_dict.pwd", 0xbfff9a1c) = -1 ENOENT

It's also consitent with the code (pam_cracklib.c) :

        if (!stat(buf,&st) && st.st_size)
            return PAM_SUCCESS;
        else {
            if (ctrl & PAM_DEBUG_ARG)
                _pam_log(LOG_NOTICE,"dict path '%s'[.pwd] is invalid",
                                     CRACKLIB_DICTPATH);
            return PAM_ABORT;
        }


In other words : It can't find your dicts file. What I do find strange it
the path it is looking for : /var/cache/cracklib. On all RH systems I've
been on it's in /usr/lib

You have two options : Make a symlink, copy the files, etc, or recompile
the cracklib module.
