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.

comment Where to download Firefox 4 and 5?
@BennyInc Corporate environments often disable auto-update features and lock on a version. Devs for that environment need to test that version.

comment Is it possible to `tail -f` the output of `dmesg`?
@Ivan Vučica Ah, good to know. Wonder where OSX represents the kernel ring buffer..

comment Why rip CDs or download music at high bitrates (eg beyond 192 Kbps)?
Lossy is not compression, as such. Compression is packing, reducing the amount of empty space. If you're packing shipments of fruit and you ditch half your load to make it fit in one truck, and you claim you compressed it, you're a liar and a cheat.

comment Slight delay when switching modes in vim using tmux or screen
Where did you find this? I can't find escape-time anywhere in man tmux, and the command doesn't work for me.

comment Why does RSA authentication work after deleting private key?
Bugger. No matter. Eris knows why, but I kill nined the pid after each pkill, just to be sure. ps auxw|grep ssh showed only the keyring command by the end, which is how I narrowed it down.

comment Why does RSA authentication work after deleting private key?
Are you saying if I see the public key when running ssh-add -L, then the private key is loaded? I ran ssh-add -D to delete all identities from ssh-add. It had no effect. root:# pkill -9 ssh_agent also had no effect on my ability to remotely login.
