PAM changes causing prompt during upgrade
I have made some changes to the /etc/pam.d/password-common file to enable pam_cracklib.so and enforce a stronger password policy.
However, now, when I do a dist-upgrade it stops at the PAM module and prompts me to choose between retaining my changes or reverting to the default.
In the past when I've had these prompts during upgrades it has meant that I modified the wrong files and I should be creating a .local version or perhaps putting my changes into a file in a .d folder.
However, I can't find any information on how to do this with my PAM change. Is there a better place to make changes to the password policy so I don't get prompted whenever PAM is updated, or am I stuck with this and will always have to tell it to keep my changes?
