Description David Woodhouse 2013-10-16 12:15:48 EDT
The GSSAPI library libgssapi_krb5.so.2 will look in /etc/gss/mech to see if any mechanisms other than Kerberos are configured.

Packages such as gssntlmssp (review bug 1018588) want to drop files into that directory, and review guidelines highlight /etc/gss as an unowned directory.

It should be owned by krb5-libs.

Although actually we want a /etc/gss/mech.d directory into which various files can be dropped, rather than relying on manual editing (or symlinking, or whatever) of a single config file. That's a more complex issue though...
