Description fredrik 2006-07-24 05:51:44 EDT
Description of problem:
authconfig does not support for automatic home directory creation. This needs to
be added by hand after each run of authconfig

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
Actual results:

Expected results:
I would expect authconfig to atleast have a option for automatic home dir creation.

Additional info:
I'm running text version of authconfig.
I have added 
session     required  /lib/security/pam_mkhomedir.so skel=/etc/skel mask=0022
to /etc/pam.d/system-auth to get the wanted functionality. Would be nice if
authconfig could do this by itself.
