Description Torrente B. 2005-06-08 20:34:25 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050511 Firefox/1.0.4

Description of problem:
After update with yum, the components pam-0.77-66.2.i386.rpm to pam-0.79-9.i386.rpm version and db4-4.2.52-6.i386.rpm to db4-4.3.27-4.i386.rpm version login and related functions / applications that use the library libpam.so.0 or libpam-misc.so.0 don't work on xdm nor text console and after reboot on a text console, typing the username and hitting enter, appear " /bin/login: error while loading shared libraries: libpam.so.0: cannot open share file. No such file or directory"

After trying to repair de problem booting with the rescue cd, if you try to execute other commands like reboot, shutdown, etc, or other apps that need's the libpam libraries or db4 functions, appears the same result.

What version of audit-libs do you have? If it's older than 0.8.1 could you try
to upgrade it?

If it doesn't help, are there any messages on login in /var/log/secure and

Comment 2 Torrente B. 2005-06-09 10:55:48 UTC
After testing the audit-libs and audit version (was 0.7.3-2) i manually download
and update to 0.9.2-1 version.
Don't work by the same way, but re-updating pam and db4 (the same version that
have fedora core 3, 4.2.52-6 for db4 and 0.77-66.2 for pam) to the developement
version 4.3.27-4 and 0.79-9 respectively, after rebooting work properly.

Thank you very much Tomas Mraz.

P.S.: logs before solution don't provide useful info.
Maybe will useful update pam and db4 dependencies for this issue.

Comment 3 Tomas Mraz 2005-06-09 11:43:48 UTC
The dependency on audit-libs>=0.8.1 is missing in the pam package. It will be
added in the next update.

Comment 4 Torrente B. 2005-06-10 21:28:02 UTC
After 24h working only remains slightly problem with the audit tool. Some error
messages appears during boot - starting sevices.
