Hi all

well, I don't know if this should be posted here, but anyway...

¿Anyone know what features you can enable in the configure script of shadow
suite?
I can't found nothing in the shadow documentation.
The only way i can found was look the config.h file generated by the configure
script without arguments,
and see md5 enctyption is not enable (something like this appears in the
config.h file /*#define MD5*/).

And i think (maybe is wrong) if you don't enable md5 in the configure script and
later you enable md5 in the /etc/login.defs file
you don't have md5 encryption.

¿Anyone have shadow working without enable md5 in the configure script and
enable in login.defs?

maybe the book could mention something like this "To enable md5 encryption you
must run ./configure --enable-md5crypt"

well, i stop here, maybe i lost some tip in the posts or whatever.

bye

Joaquin
