authconfig retry=3




The authconfig executable has the number of password attempts hardcoded within it:

> strings /usr/sbin/authconfig | grep retry
retry=3

Running authconfig generates the /etc/pam.d/system-auth file (with retrys=3). Question: how do I instruct, configure, or otherwise organize my system so that
the number of retries is, say, 2.
The system-auth file is regenerated everytime that authconfig is run, so that
hand editing system-auth while possible will be overridden next time
authconfig is run - with all edits lost.
