Description of problem:
pam_env, which is by default called from system_auth, requires the
file /etc/environment to exist. This file however is not part of the
distribution. Therefor it is e.g. not possible to do rsh to the system.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. rsh ams
Critical error - immediate abort
rlogin: connection closed.
Can you give a bit more information on how you determined that
/etc/enviroment was needed by pam_env? Does this show up as an error
when it tried to run?
A quick look in the sourcecode for pam gave me the hint that this was
the case. And then
remedied the problem (-:
This is fixed in current setup packages.
