Description Steve Grubb 2005-05-31 17:33:05 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050513 Fedora/1.0.4-1.3.1 Firefox/1.0.4

Description of problem:
The vixie-cron package needs some updates for the eal4 certification.

1) The following needs to be added to its pam configuration:

session    required     pam_loginuid.so

It will need to change the Requires to state the pam version that includes the pam_loginuid patch.

2) There were a number of pam cleanups that went into FC4 regarding session closure. They are also required for eal4 cert. They may already be in cvs, I just need to make sure they are in RHEL4.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. New functionality

Additional info:

* The pam config change can be done for rawhide. I think pam-0.79-6 and later have the loginuid module.

Comment 1 Jason Vas Dias 2005-05-31 20:10:15 UTC
I'll update the /etc/pam.d/crond file to require 
'session required pam_loginuid.so'
when pam_loginuid is in RHEL-4 , and in rawhide
on next cron update.

Comment 2 Jason Vas Dias 2005-05-31 20:11:36 UTC
I'll update the /etc/pam.d/atd file to require 
'session required pam_loginuid.so'
when pam_loginuid is in RHEL-4 , and in rawhide
on next at update.

Comment 5 Jason Vas Dias 2005-06-17 17:29:35 UTC
vixie-cron-4.1-EL4.34 now submitted to RHEL-4 with requisite 
/etc/pam.d/crond file using pam_loginuid.so .
