On a fresh install of Fedora 19 I am attempting to change the password to something simple, like Password01 (this is just a simple testing VM, nothing fancy), but the password complexity requirements prevent me from setting anything easy to remember.
How can I bypass the complexity requirements or disable them?
the contents of /etc/pam.d/passwd:
#%PAM-1.0 auth include system-auth account include system-auth password substack system-auth -password optional pam_gnome_keyring.so use_authtok password substack postlogin
Even as root I cannot bypass the requirements:
justincase@localhost ~ $ sudo -s [sudo] password for justincase: [root@localhost justincase]# passwd justincase Changing password for user justincase. New password: BAD PASSWORD: The password fails the dictionary check - it is based on a dictionary word Retype new password: [root@localhost justincase]#
