patch to fix pam problems

This is the same patch as put into rawhide. I'm attaching it for convenience.
Comment 2 Tim Waugh 2005-06-06 07:28:21 EDT
Testcase would be simple to write.  Here is a one-line how-to-reproduce (as root):

su mail < /dev/null

The impact of this bug is that some packages will have failing %post scriptlets:
notably inn.  See bug #158189 for the original bug report.

I agree that this should be proposed for RHEL4 U2.
Comment 3 Tim Waugh 2005-06-06 07:32:32 EDT
Oh, I just saw that the original report was to add the code that bug #158189
points out a bug in. :-)

Well, fixed patch below.  Please disregard comment #2.

interdiff -qp1 <(cvs up -p -r 1.4 coreutils-pam.patch ) <(cvs up -p -r 1.6 coreutils-pam.patch

Fixed patch.
Comment 5 Steve Grubb 2005-06-06 13:58:32 EDT
I'm thinking that the patch should probably look at stdout and see if that is a
valid terminal if stdin is a file. I'll rework the newest patch to do this and
Comment 9 Steve Grubb 2005-06-17 10:26:40 EDT
Regarding my comment above, the new patch is fine. Any chance that you build a
package for RHEL4? I need to get this to IBM by Monday if at all possible.
