Description of problem:
RHEL4 has authd instead of identd. We should reflect this in the docs.
The one place where I found it was "4.5.3. Insecure Services", but there may be other places.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. wonder why one can't find an identd rpm
2. search for identd in our docs
3. find the rhel-sg
Actual Results: outdated info in docs
Expected Results: updated info in docs
maybe something along the lines of
- authd (this was called identd in previous RHEL releases)
I made the requested change to the rhel-sg.
I see that the Reference Guide has a commented-out section on
identd, but nothing about authd. Would it be possible to restore
that section (sysconfig.sgml lines 994-1019) with a straight
replacement of authd for inetd?
Note that there does not appear to be a man page for authd.
just looked at version 1.4.3-7.1 from FC devel, that has a README.html (did not
check the current RHEL4 version as I wanted to be sure to check the latest
I suggest you take that as a starting point for the docs. Especially the section
showing differences from pidentd
Adding 'cc firstname.lastname@example.org for tracking
Removing automation notification
verified that this is already in source. marking as MODIFIED, to be resolved
when rhel-sg is updated next on live site.
