Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 199913
authconfig does not autocreate home directories (no such option)
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:26 EST
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):
Steps to Reproduce:
I would expect authconfig to atleast have a option for automatic home dir creation.
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.
