NIS password change problem
I have got trouble with changing NIS-user passwords and some mailing lists advised me to check my PAM config.
As i've learnt by now, slack doesnt support PAM.
My network clients and file server are all slack boxes where users access their data through a NIS/NFS set up.
The users cant change their password . when they try to do so, they get an error saying : user xyz was not found in /etc/passwd
1-I still dont know if at all the above problem has got anything to do with PAM
2-what is the procedure that slackware follows to change a password? how can i solve the problem?
