Description Ilya Konstantinov 2005-03-26 10:40:37 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; ru-RU; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20050202 Firefox/0.7 StumbleUpon/1.901 (Debian package 1.0+dfsg.1-4)

Description of problem:
The 'pam_mysql' module is useful for scenarios of "virtual mailboxes". Currently, RHEL is simply unfit for such scenarios; following common HOWTOs like the Postfix+Cyrus+cyr-webadm, a user quickly stumbles on the lack of pam_mysql.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
Not relevant.

Comment 1 Suzanne Hillman 2005-03-28 17:03:21 EST
Internal RFE bug #152366 entered; will be considered for future releases.
Comment 2 Tomas Mraz 2005-05-25 11:29:11 EDT
This module cannot be added to the basic pam package as it shouldn't depend on
mysql. A new package must be created instead.
Comment 4 David Lawrence 2006-03-09 20:26:54 EST
NEEDINFO_PM status has been obsoleted. Changing status to NEEDINFO and assigning
to riek@redhat.com
