Dear sir,

I've try to change the password via the "Chang
Password" module in the usermin page. However, After
keyin both old and new password, the system prompt an
error saying that the Auth::PAM is not install / must
configure to using external program. ?? This is not the
problem if I'm using the webmin to do the change
password. Pls. advice. Thanks.

    Usermin uses a different password changing mechanism to webmin.
    which is why this is necessary. However, the next usermin
    release will
    intelligently fall back to using the 'passwd' command if
    Authen::PAM
    is not installed.
