Description of problem:
Bug 55193 shows issues with pam authentication when the network is
down. These fixes do work (bug 55193), if /usr is mounted locally. We
are running of a nfs mounted /usr, the pam modules are linked to
shared libraries in /usr, so if the network is down not even root can
login to the system. This is an issue for me, we cannot even log in to
see the issue with networking.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Down network (or start with not network cable) try to login
2. Login with local password, loging fails
Actual Results: No one can login
Expected Results: Local users should still be able to login
Could you please test which module makes the login fail for you?
Especially could you test with pam_console commented out?
This bug report is incomplete, no response from the reporter.
Here are the pam modules linked to libraries in /usr
Yeah I know that, however I need to know which exact module makes the login fail
These modules aren't part of the basic pam package and you cannot expect them to
work without network anyway:
This module is used only on password change -> no problem with login:
This module was modified not to link to libraries in /usr in the Fedora
development - you can test it using the FC4Test3 release:
Great. I will test fc4. I think it will fix the problem, as I expected local
logins to work wen the network was down.
