Description Eric Hagberg 2004-04-12 13:32:26 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.6)
Gecko/20040310 Firefox/0.8

Description of problem:
Due to /usr being mounted over the network, logins will fail if the
network is down for some reason, because pam is now pulling in liblaus:

$ ldd /lib/libpam.so.0
        libc.so.6 => /lib/tls/libc.so.6 (0xf64a9000)
        libdl.so.2 => /lib/libdl.so.2 (0xf64a6000)
        liblaus.so.1 => /usr/lib/liblaus.so.1 (0xf64a3000)
        /lib/ld-linux.so.2 => /lib/ld-linux.so.2 (0xaa000000)

Either liblaus should be moved to /lib or pam shouldn't do this.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install RHEL3 U2 beta
2. set things up so that /usr is mounted over the network
3. pull network cord
4. attempt root login (which normally shouldn't require net access)
5. watch it fail

laus-0.1-RHEL51 places all of the laus libraries in /lib
