comment How do I disable or modify pam's password requirements?
@Nick I see. Yes, root can use passwd without being f-d with by pam. Little to do with the actual question, but it does make the claim in this "answer" true.

@Nick That doesn't disable or modify pam's password requirements.

This is absolutely not the behaviour I experience with Fedora 19.

I should also note, just setting USEPWQUALITY=no and/or USECRACKLIB=no doesn't solve my problem either, even before running authconfig.

Unfortunately (as mentioned in the question), running authconfig --updateall resets the files. I'm thoroughly perplexed at that answer, since it directly contradicts the behaviour I'm observing.

Thanks, I hadn't seen that yet. Unfortunately, pwquality.conf doesn't support disabling dictionary checks or disabling password length checks.

@Ramhound because fedora is infested with pam. yum remove pam removes, as far as I can tell by the time it takes to scroll all its depending packages, everything. Including yum and systemd. Also, disabling pam feels like a sledgehammer, when I think I just want to use sand paper.

comment How can I verify a certificate's fingerprints?
Also, since the cert claims to be issued by Equifax, is there a way to verify that instead of the fingerprints for gmail's imap?

So, ideally, Google would publish the fingerprints for their various fingerprints. I feel like if I hit accept, I'm blindly trusting this certificate, since I don't know where to access a known legit copy.
