Description of problem:
# /usr/sbin/authconfig --passalgo=sha512 --update
# grep crypt_style /etc/libuser.conf 
Actual results:
crypt_style = md5

Expected results:
crypt_style = sha512

Additional info:
# rpm -qf /usr/sbin/authconfig
Comment 1 Tomas Mraz 2010-09-01 03:40:56 EDT
It would work if you passed --updateall or if you switched to sha256 first and then to sha512. There is a problem with syncing configuration files if some of them already contain the requested value.
