Getting SuSE to automatically use MD5 passwords
Date: Sat, 1 Jan 2005 12:38:59 -0500
OK, SuSE 9.0 and 9.1 seem to install DES passwords only at boot time. It's
possible to change it via YaST to support MD5 passwords, but *of course*
there's no way to configure this in the autoyast or at OS installation time,
and there is no documented way to switch to using MD5 except via YaST.
Does anyone out there know how to set this automatically for autoyast
installs, or at worst what changes to make in the configurations to change
this? I'm assuming it's a PAM setting, but I'm cautious about casually
editing those or editing those directly.
