I just created a new user, and want to intentionally set a bad password. The Gnome user settings screen prevents this, correctly pointing out that my bad password fails a dictionary attack.
I don’t care, but there is no override in the UI, so I went to the command line. It appears to have worked, but I got a warning and an error as well:
It’s good that I’m warned even on the command line, but what is the deal with a missing file? I’ve never seen this before, and when testing appears no matter the password I put in.
Looks like it’s uncompressed, so I think we can probably ignore the error/warning:
$ rpmls cracklib-dicts
Nothing provides the gz:
$ sudo dnf whatprovides '/usr/share/cracklib/pw_dict.pwd.gz'
Error: No matches found. If searching for a file, try specifying the full path or using a wildcard prefix ("*/") at the beginning.
You could report it as a bug if you wish so the maintainer can take a closer look?
