Please, help me here. I feel stupid not knowing what you're talking
My understanding is that we comment out those lines in the login.defs
file because we no longer want Shadow (login program) to handle these
chores, instead, Linux-PAM does it.
Have I been under the wrong impression all this time? If so, at a
minimum the language in the book needs to change to reflect this
"undefinded in the binary" business (whatever that means).
Dan, I'm not trying to be a smart-aleck, I just don't know what you're
talking about. Looking at the patch you sent a link to was useless.
There is nothing in it that even gives me a remote clue.
