This is most probably a misconfiguration. What is contents of your
/etc/pam.d/system-auth file and what says rpm -q pam_krb5?

Comment 2 bmcag-1 2006-05-04 09:16:08 UTC
[root@r2d2 index]# rpm -q pam_krb5
package pam_krb5 is not installed

# This file is auto-generated.
# User changes will be destroyed the next time authconfig is run.

Comment 3 Tomas Mraz 2006-05-04 09:31:58 UTC
hmm, then what about /etc/pam.d/crond ?

Comment 4 bmcag-1 2006-05-04 09:33:57 UTC

[root@r2d2 index]# cat /etc/pam.d/crond
# The PAM configuration file for the cron daemon
auth    sufficient      pam_rootok.so
auth    required        pam_stack.so service=system-auth
auth    required        pam_env.so
account required        pam_stack.so service=system-auth
session required        pam_limits.so
session optional        pam_krb5.so

ok, here ist is...

[root@r2d2 index]# rpm -qvf /etc/pam.d/crond 

so it is a bug in vixie-cron, right? If yes, do I have to open a new bug?

Comment 5 Jakub Hrozek 2006-05-04 10:33:02 UTC
This issue has been resolved with vixie-cron-4.1-11.EL3, so you can either  
upgrade to this package or remove the line "session optional pam_krb5.so" from 
your /etc/pam.d/crond file. 

Comment 6 bmcag-1 2006-05-04 11:34:22 UTC
where can I get that update? I just ran up2date -u, but it is still

Comment 7 Jakub Hrozek 2006-05-04 11:57:39 UTC
It was released through the optional FastTrack channel, so you need to make  
sure your system is registered there (up2date --nox --show-channels)
