Go to yast/security/local security/password settings

There, you can change the requiered minimum length of passwords.

However, this option is not applied. When you set the min length to 3 and than
change the password on the console with passwd-command to abcd, which has 4
letters, then the cange is refused. Same, when you set min length to 0.

Also, when you disable testing in YaST completly, this is not applied.

Reproducible: Always
