Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 3024
blank password not allowed
Last modified: 2015-01-07 18:37:22 EST
It is not possible to log in with a blank password.
This is problem if you forget the root password, boot
into single user mode and reset the password.
I do not use shadow passwords.
It seems as if the nullok option from pam_pwdb is ignored.
