Some additional information maybe? Like your common-auth
file (if thats where your making your modification and it
should be). Also a description of your authentication
stack. Are you using the unix passwd file (aka pam_unix) or
some other auth method? What errors are you getting to your
auth.log file? Is your /var/log/faillog file growing? Be
verbose, the more complete of a description you give the
easier it will be to fix.
