Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 179584
Document common config files + release note
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:22 EST
Add man pages for:
system-auth-ac (to authconfig)
The man pages were added to their respective packages.
System-config-authentication and its command line counterpart authconfig
1. Configuration files of individual services for which no changes were applied
are not overwritten.
2. Authconfig doesn't change /etc/pam.d/system-auth directly but links it to
system-auth-ac. See also system-auth-ac(5).
3. There is a new configuration option which enables authentication of system
accounts (uid < 500) by network services as LDAP or Kerberos. This was enabled
by default in previous releases of Fedora Core. Now it is disabled by default.
PAM configuration improvements:
There is a new common configuration file for system configuration utilities
which are run through the userhelper wrapper. See config-util(5) and
system-auth(5) manual pages.
Thanks for the pointer ( and the usage of *docs* in your check-in.)
Is this hitting FC5 test3? FC5 release?
It will be already in FC5 test3.
Adding as blocker for FC5 relnotes inclusion.
