I noticed that my log in /var/log/syslog doesn't report any passwords failure, as it should with unix-chkpwd.
So I googled it and I found a manipulation that should help me with that. Here is what I did :
- I installed this : http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/libs...AM-0.77.tar.gz
- I wrote this :
./configure --enable-static-libpam --with-mailspool=/var/mail \
--enable-read-both-confs --sysconfdir=/etc &&
make install &&
mv /lib/libpam.a /lib/libpam_misc.a /lib/libpamc.a /usr/lib &&
ln -sf ../../lib/libpam.so.0.77 /usr/lib/libpam.so &&
ln -sf ../../lib/libpam_misc.so.0.77 /usr/lib/libpam_misc.so &&
ln -sf ../../lib/libpamc.so.0.77 /usr/lib/libpamc.so
In the end, unix-chkpwd still doesn't work (please help me to make this work) and even worse, when I type su or sudo ls and then my password, it says my password is incorrect.
I don't know if this has anything to do with the manipulation I just made, because I'm a newbie, but I think it does.
I now fear to shut my computer down because I'm afraid I won't be able to log in anymore. So please help me fast
because I'll wait for your instructions before turning it down.
On another matter, which I'm not sure it's related either, my syslog is now getting spammed with "ureadahead-other main process (xxx) terminated with status 2" (several messages per second).
I googled it too, and I found it may be related to fstab issues, but I'm not sure, and I don't know enough anyway to modify it.
Here it is, tell me if there's anything wrong with it, and how to modify it :
# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
# Use 'vol_id --uuid' to print the universally unique identifier for a
# device; this may be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name devices
# that works even if disks are added and removed. See fstab(5).
# <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass>
