Description blake 1998-12-12 05:28:59 UTC
Hello, I recently purchased a copy of RH 5.2, which I'm quite pleased with, keep up the good work. I set the root password on my box to "notachance" I added a user "blake" and set the password to "notachance3" I can login on with either account (root or blake) using either password this seems very odd both passwords work with both accounts? Am I missing the boat on something here?

Thses passwords are 9 and 10 characters, maybe there is a limit of 8 characters and the additional will be ignored?
Comment 2 blake 1998-12-12 08:17:59 UTC
Actually, notachance is 10 characters and notachance3 is 11 characters And yes 8 characters appears to be the max, I did not imagine the number of characters allowed for passwords was that low, that is odd, oh well.
