Please include a simple mechanism to add PAM modules to the system-auth stack.
There are more complex setups than authconfig allows to configure and I don't
want to add them to every PAM service configuration file or rewrite
/etc/pam.d/system-auth every time authconfig was called.
A simple configuration containing a list of additional lines to include in
system-auth would be eough.

I'll consider this for in the development process for FC.
Comment 2 Tomas Mraz 2005-12-05 11:48:49 EST
Your proposed solution wouldn't be universal enough.

The PAM configuration is now written in system-auth-ac file which is then
symlinked from system-auth, the symlink is not overwritten so local PAM
configuration is now possible. You just create for example system-auth-local and
change the /etc/pam.d/system-auth symlink to point to that file. You can also
'include' the system-auth-ac if you just want to add some pam modules before or
after the system-auth-ac configuration.
