cracklib_dict.pwd is located in /usr/lib/ but
passwd looks in /usr/share/dicts/
Comment 1 Nalin Dahyabhai 2000-02-05 16:33:59 EST
This is actually a bug in one of the underlying PAM modules (pam_unix in
particular).  If you're using pam_unix in /etc/pam.d/passwd, then this is fixed
as of 0.72-1 and later in Raw Hide.  If you're not, please send in the contents
of your /etc/pam.d/passwd file so that we can take a closer look at the
offending module.
