pam for passwords



I am trying to use the pam_passwdqc module to tighten up the passwords on my system. I have edited the /etc/pam.d/passwd file by putting the following line at the end:
password  required        pam_passwdqc.so min=disabled,24,12,8,7
I then commented out the line:
password   required     pam_stack.so service=system-auth

I only commented out the line because if I didn't, it would ask me to enter the password 4 times and it wouldn't matter which line was first, it would only save the password that was entered during the pam_stack.so change. When I had the pam_stack.so commented out, I could ssh in and run "passwd" to change the password, it would accept the new password, but would not write to the /etc/shadow file.

Can anybody tell me what I am doing wrong?

Thanks
Steve
