Well, I am preparing a talk about “Open source software licenses” for the University of Liege – Belgium -.
Do not ask me it yet cause it is not finished. Normally, I should publish it in December 2011.

Dear *,

Last week, I had a technical question regarding the passwd command. The question was about how to insert a banner or warning message when a user want or have to change his password.

One of the solutions is to create a file /etc/motd_passwd_warning with your warning. Here “HELLO”.

[root@localhost ~]# cat /etc/motd_passwd_warning
HELLO

Then to change the /etc/pam.d/passwd in adding the following line :
password optional pam_echo.so file=/etc/motd_passwd_warning

[root@localhost ~]# cat /etc/pam.d/passwd
#%PAM-1.0
auth include system-auth
account include system-auth
password optional pam_echo.so file=/etc/motd_passwd_warning
password substack system-auth
-password optional pam_gnome_keyring.so use_authtok
password substack postlogin

And that is all.

Here is the result :

[root@localhost ~]# passwd
Changing password for user root.
HELLO
New password:
BAD PASSWORD: it is based on a dictionary word
Retype new password:
passwd: all authentication tokens updated successfully

Rem : Following a comment from Daniel Walsh – see below -, I changed a little bit this article from its original publication.
Thanks to Daniel for his feedback.

Dear *,

Following the advice Daniel gave me on my previous post related to Spice, I decided to try spice on F-15. – https://fhornain.wordpress.com/2011/03/15/spice-my-first-spice-access-to-kvm-machine/

The problem was I did not want to use F-15 on my main and only one physical machine at home.
Quite normal cause F-15 is still in Alpha. 😉

So the exercise was not difficult to realize but I admit a little bit complex.

That is to say, I still used my F-14 as a Spice Server an launched a RHEL 6 KVM with the enabled Spice option – I know it could be better if I would have use F-15 but you know the reason why I did not use it -.

Then I opened a X ssh session to my F-15 KVM virtual machine where I launched a spice client in order to access my RHEL 6 KVM . – see pictures –

So, the result of that exercise is that I confirm spice is having full SPICE support across all levels of the stack on F-15.

Even if I ran an hybrid solution between F-14 and F-15, I noticed a really nice improvement in the video flow when I ran an ogg. file inside my launched RHEL 6 KVM with the enabled Spice option.

Rem : – I did not managed to make sound working but maybe I missed some options.
– I did not try with M$ Windows as well. Nonetheless, as soon as I will have few minutes, I will.

Let hope my explanation was clear.
Anyway and again congratulation to the KVM, Spice Team for that. 🙂
Thanks also to Daniel for his help.

Best Regards
