    Need command for forcing Alpha-numeric password for ROOT user

    I am using Debian 5 version where i need to force the user to have alpha-numeric password (at-least 1 numeric & 1 alphabet should be in entered password ).

    On surfing i came to know AIX using 'chuser' command to achieve what i need.

    I want the equivalent for debian system

    Any body can help on this?

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.
    For normal Linux logins, I don't know of a way to force this, other than re-writing the passwd command to enforce that. The system itself doesn't have a means (that I know of - someone might correct me on this) to enforce that.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
    Just remember, Semper Gumbi - always be flexible!

    Well, there is this. Dunno if it's available in Debian 5 though.
