   Linux FAQ > 7. Solutions to Common Miscellaneous Problems
Question:  7.10. Some Programs (E.g. xdm) Won't Allow Logins.
Answer:

You are probably using non-shadow password programs and are using shadow passwords.

If so, you have to get or compile a shadow password version of the programs in question. The shadow password suite can be found at ftp://tsx-11.mit.edu:/pub/linux/sources/usr.bin/shadow/. This is the source code. The binaries are probably in linux/binaries/usr.bin/.
