#17 Change password times out - no errors


I am using Sco Openserver 5.0.5/6 running the latest version of
usermin (0.94) and the latest version of webmin (0.99).

I setup usermin to only provide the change password function as
i am moving to samba with encrypted passwords and i needed a
way of letting users change both the unix and samba passwords
at the same time.

Webmin does it beautifully.

Usermin hangs however after entering in details and clicking
change password.

Nothing gets entered into any logs. The HTML page eventually
times out.

From what i can tell (and i am no perl expert), the webmin change
password module uses its useradmin module to actually change
passwords. On the other hand usermin seems to want to use
I believe this is my problem as Sco doesn't use PAM.

I have also set the usermin configuration to not use PAM for
Authorisation but this doesn't seem to affect "change passwords".

So how can i get around this? Is there a way to reconfigure
usermin to use PAM only if it is installed?

    After much discussions with the submitter, this will be
    fixed in the
    next usermin release.
