Well, imagine that. There really wasn't a problem to begin with I
guess. I followed the rest of the instructions on the page and now
I can log in with no errors. The warning in the middle of the page
suggested that I should stop there at not proceed if there were
any errors or else I would cripple my system, and I definitely
configuration error - unknown item 'FAILLOG_ENAB'
configuration error - unknown item 'LASTLOG_ENAB'
and so on as errors.
Is there a specific reason why the editing of the logins.def file
was placed at the bottom of the page instead of before the
warning? Had it been before the warning, I would not have wasted
2 days on the issue. If there is not reason I will suggest it
to the (B)LFS staff.
Also, as I am still a little paranoid, is there a way to ensure that
the PAM/shadow integration was 100% successful other then
being able to log in with no errors? I would like to be sure that by
commenting out the variables, I did not open some security hole,
or cripple my system in a way that not apparent right away.
