Jiri, it seems to work manually under a 12.1, once in Yast2 security center ->
password you set SHA512
then the /etc/default/passwd contain this

CRYPT_FILES=sha512

So this is correct and YaST works as it should on installed system.

For 12.1 update, perhaps the script could check if
CRYPT_FILES=md5
then replace it by
CRYPT_FILES=sha512
? Don't know if it's a good idea or not, +adding a comment #bnc743715

No, that would not be good, as we could not know in script if the value is
there by error or on purpose.

So I think I can close it now: for 12.1, users can change the encryption value
from YaST, and for next release, it should work well from the beginning.
