Re: cannot change a password, Problem with pam_chauthtok
Shalom Andreas,

Has the pam.conf file been changed?

It is also possible that the pam_chauthtok file(if such a thing exists) has become corrupt and needs to be copied in from another system.

I'm pretty sure rebooting is not going to help.

You might try manually nulling out the passwd section of /etc/passwd and then running the passwd command.
