newbie type questions
I've installed Deb 4.0 on a NSLU2, it did not istall first time it took
several attempts to load, I running with a 8 GB flash stick.
I wasn't able untar the tar ball directly on to the stick as in the
manual method of installation, the host machine runs MDV 2001.1 and did
not like dual partition names.
I've spent two days trying to stop the mandatory change password on SSH
I've tried putting SSH keys in, and seaching all through /etc/pam.d. and
googling. I found how to turn it on but not off.
Its this behaviour:-
[root@gb7tf Desktop]# route add -host 192.168.1.77 eth2
[root@gb7tf Desktop]# ssh 192.168.1.77
You are required to change your password immediately (root enforced)

Changing password for root
(current) UNIX password:
Changing the password allows you to continue.
if you try to login as a user , you get the same, but after changing the
password it drops the connection.
I know my way around Mandriva, I've been using it for the the last 5
years, but I'm new to Debian.
How do I turn off the password change request ??
The intended use of this wee beastie is as a Ham DXCluster server,
Firewall, and printserver.
So extra USB ports to be added, and clocked, plus ntp client & ddclient
to be run.
