Hi there ... just installed frozen, and I love it. I've been cleaning
up my log files, config files, and generally poking around ... so I
tried to enable shadow passwords. Here's what occured:
endor:/etc # shadowconfig on
grep: xdm: No such file or directory
sed: can't read xdm: No such file or directory
Please correct the error and rerun `/usr/sbin/shadowconfig on'
Ok ... why does xdm have to be present? This server is a production web
server ... 99.9 percent of the work is done via telnet/ssh. Actually
most of the connections are www, ftp, etc. I guess what I'm saying is
*I* don't particularly care about X on this machine ... it's not
supporting dedicated users. If I understood X better I'd probably use
it and export to an xterm, but for now I want shadow passwords :)
I looked at the script and figured I could comment out the lines
pertaining to xdm ... but I need some opinions. Is this a bad idea?
(Admitting cluelessness pertaining to all things X)
