Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:11 EST
Description of problem:
The latest cracklib devel update prevents any password changes.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Change a password for a user
Steps to Reproduce:
Changing password for user someuser.
New UNIX password:
/usr/share/cracklib/pw_dict: error reading header
Retype new UNIX password:
passwd: all authentication tokens updated successfully.
I did some searching and come across this bug:
I believe this is the same issue.
Reverting 'cracklib' packages to version 2.8.9 from 'F7' allows to
restore proper function which is mandatory after a fresh install
from the 'rawhide' development tree.
Ugh, don't know why I didn't catch that. Thanks!
