Just because one package replaces another doesn't mean they are
configured the same. We are talking about adding a whole new layer to
the authentication and login process, which is bound to create some
different approaches to setup. I gave you the answer you were looking
for and explained where to look in order to configure it the way you
need it. I failed to see that you were expecting some one to do it for
you instead of taking 15 minutes to look over a small section of the
PAM docs.

It would be impossible to take into account every little detail of
shadow's setup and configure pam-apps on the fly to emulate what it

Please take the few moments required to look this over, or maybe go
back to the normal shadow utils.
