Projects / fgetty

Release Notes: fgetty now comes with a checkpassword with /etc/passwd and /etc/shadow support. Also, the checkpassword API (and login2) is augmented so that your TTY now actually belongs to you after you log in.

    USE IT
    It is just fine, very usable, small - what does anybody want more?
    Also get the checkpasswd (a link on the home) and use the supplied login replacing your login -- and free about 900k (login stays in RAM until you logout - thanks to SUN bloatware PAM).
