Description Julio Entrena Perez 2013-10-16 10:21:46 EDT
Description of problem:
PAM Authentication Plugin is not currently shipped in MariaDB 55 SCL packages.

Customer wants to use PAM to enforce password expiration so users have to change their passwords on a regular basis (required for PCI compliance).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
mariadb55-mariadb 5.5.32-1.el6
mariadb55 1-7.el6

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install MariaDB 5.5 SCL packages.

Actual results:
/opt/rh/mariadb55/root/usr/lib64/mysql/plugin/auth_pam.so is missing.

Expected results:
/opt/rh/mariadb55/root/usr/lib64/mysql/plugin/auth_pam.so is provided.

Additional info:
Rebuilding packages with 'pam-devel' packages installed solves it.
Comment 1 Honza Horak 2013-10-16 12:38:10 EDT
This seems to be quite easy; only pam-devel should be added to the BuildRequires, so providing dev_ack.
