Please send replies directly to me as I do not have time to check the
list as often as I would like..
Currently, it appears that some passwords on my system are DES, most are
MD5. I found the following below recently, a suggestion to switch to
blowfish. I am down with that! If I change the following (as shown
below) in /etc/login.conf, will the system still decrypt the old DES and
MD5 entries, ie. nothing will break in this regard?
# change the password encryption to Blowfish instead of the default md5
