Description of problem: pam_console is mostly broken and needs to be deleted. This package has some dependencies with it that have to be removed beforehand. I have found that at least pam/lxdm and pam.lxdm depend on pam_console but please check for any other hidden dependency.
Well, I cannot judge anything from the word "mostly broken" or so.
* Please provide the information how it is broken
* And can you provide some information that it is really safe to remove pam_console without breaking anything else?
* The module is not included into the upstream Linux PAM sources, thus it is not maintained by the community. Moreover, the management of user sessions is taken over by systemd.
* From what I can see in this package, pam stack settings have the following: "session optional pam_console.so"
The purpose of that line is to configure and manage user sessions with pam_console. If it success it will change permissions and ownership of files as described in the file /etc/security/console.perms, which nowadays is empty. So, it will have no effect. If it fails the configuration process can continue and the failure is recorded.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 33 development cycle.
Changing version to 33.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 33 is nearing its end of life.
Fedora will stop maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 33 on 2021-11-30.
It is Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no longer
maintained. At that time this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a
Fedora 'version' of '33'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version.
Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not
able to fix it before Fedora 33 is end of life. If you would still like
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version
of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
