when a user's shadow password is about to expire, PAM prints a message about the expiration e.g. at login via SSH. However, if there is also a /etc/motd, the fact that it follows the warning obscures the warning and nobody sees it. What I would like to do is provide a more readily noticable warning, e.g. a notice before every shell command, or something along those lines. The question is: how do I check whether a user's password is about to expire from a script? Or does anyone have a better solution? -- Please do not CC me when replying to lists; I read them! .''`. martin f. krafft <email@example.com> : :' : proud Debian developer, admin, and user `. `'` `- Debian - when you have better things to do than fixing a system Invalid/expired PGP subkeys?
