Description of problem:
(Component should be cyrus-imapd-nntp, but that is not listed at all
in the form.)
After upgrading to cyrus-imapd*-2.2.10-3.fc2, NNTP authentication no
longer works. IMAP authentication still works as expected.
saslauthd runs with -a pam
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Connect to the NNTP service with a newsreader
2. Enter user & pass
Actual Results: Authentication fails
Expected Results: Successfull login
DEBUG: auth_pam: pam_authenticate failed: Authentication failure
do_auth : auth failure: [user=XXXX] [service=nntp] [realm=]
[mech=pam] [reason=PAM auth error]
badlogin: [...] plaintext XXXX SASL(-13): authentication failure:
Could you try to "cp /etc/pam.d/news /etc/pam.d/nntp". Seems like the
pam service name has silently been changed recently.
That worked, thanks!
It's fixed now in the current Invoca rpm (cyrus-imapd-2.2.10-7). I'm
sure it will be fixed in the next RedHat/Fedora package too.
currently importing cyrus-imapd 2.2.10-11, this will show up in the
next fedora release, FC4
