Description of problem:
We need a message added to login to show the fact that a login was attempted and what the results are. Its possible under the current system but very clumsy to figure out logins. This is not conducive to writing automatic reporting tools.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
2. look for it in audit records
Actual Results: You get a pam session open message. cron also opens pam session and doesn't login, so its hard to spot logins when looking for success/fail with current audit tools.
I will provide a small patch that fixes this.

patch to add audit enhancements
This is a patch that I'm testing against rawhide version of util-linux.
The patch looks OK. Added to FC5 branch.
audit-1.0.12 is now supposed to be in the RHEL4 build root. Please update any
Requires or BuildRequires to that version. Let me know if you have any problems.
