I can't change my password in Mandriva 2006

Posted 03-26-2006 at 02:45 AM by Bengan

I have tried to change my password several times, but get the comment that my selected new password is a dictionary word. That is a lie - I enter a random combination of letters and digits. What's up with that, and what can I do about it?

(thanks to mailing lists for this tip :) )

dircolors -p > ls_colors.file
Edit the file and customize the colors.
