[kde-solaris] KCheckpass on Solaris 8
Mon Nov 11 21:52:02 2002
As has been pointed out that creates a huge security hole on your system and
likely indirectly compromises other systems as well. Here is a much safer
workaround (tested with KDE 2.2.*):
As root, run the following (adjust the /opt/sfw paths as needed).
ln -s /opt/sfw/kde/lib/libkdefakes.so.3 /usr/lib/libkdefakes.so.3
chown root /opt/sfw/kde/bin/kcheckpass
chmod u+s /opt/sfw/kde/bin/kcheckpass

chmod 4755 /etc/shadow
Thats all I did and it started working.
