Hi.

I followed the cracklib instructions to the detail (in fact I cnp'd it...) but 
did not install pam. After reinstalling shadow I tried to set my password but 
got

/var/cache/cracklib/cracklib_dict.pwd: File or Directory not found
PWOpen: Seek not allowed

After linking /lib/cracklib/pw_dict.* to /var/cache/cracklib/cracklib_dict.* 
everything worked just fine...

Torsten.
