Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 128366
Login does not inform users of expired passwords (gdm does)
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:03 EST
Description of problem:
Login and GDM do not have consistent behavior with each other. Login
doesn't tell users that their password has expired. GDM does.
This could be fixed with a simple warning for login when a users
password has expired simialar to what gdm does "your account has
expired, please contact your system administrator".
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Log in using login as a user with an expired password
2.Compare to gdm
Its not consistent. And not particularly helpful either.
Login should be consistent with gdm and tell the user of the problem
so that they indeed contact the system admin, rather than trying
Red Hat's training currently involves getting users to solve problems
with expired passwords - the inconsistency between gdm and login
doesn't look great. If someone who knows C better than I do could fix
login, that's be great.
Thanks very much.
