Description Florian Brand 2004-04-01 13:30:25 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4.1)

Description of problem:
it is not possible to use pam_chroot with ssh.
The configuration works with a local login.
I suspect the priviledge separation code is the culprit.
See bug 98330. Could be a duplicate.

I tried to use it with the priv. sep. turned off, but still it remains.
After username and password, the login hangs.

/var/log/security states that the chdir and chroot was done sucessful.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. configure pam_chroot 
2. try to login as chrooted user

Actual Results:  ssh login hangs

Expected Results:  chrooted access

Please try if packages from http://people.redhat.com/tmraz/testing/
work. However as they aren't official they aren't supported so use
them only for testing.

Sorry, forgot about the bugzilla update. The test version works nicely.
(both pam_chroot and password aging)
