Description Kostas Georgiou 2006-06-25 13:08:52 UTC
It seems that kcheckpass now tries pam_setcred with PAM_REFRESH_CRED instead of
PAM_ESTABLISH_CRED which isn't a bad idea. But unfortunately if the renewal time
of your kerberos ticket has expired it will not grab a new ticket for you. I
don't know enough about pam but it would be nice (if pam_setcred returns an
error) to detect this and retry with PAM_ESTABLISH_CRED so the user always has a
valid ticket.

Unfortunately #191049 is closed so I have no idea what the reasoning behind the
change is.

> Unfortunately #191049 is closed 
puzzling statement since *this* bug is #191049.  (: Did you mean to refer to a
different one?

Comment 2 Kostas Georgiou 2006-08-23 15:25:35 UTC
*This* bug is #196587 :)

In any case this bug seems to be fixed now, I do get new tickets every time I
unlock my screen. I haven't checked what has changed but I can login to my
desktop every morning (since my home is nfs4 with kerberos, I do notice right
away if I don't have a ticket.)
