gnome-screensaver fails to unlock screen if kerberos in use; segfaults on x86_64
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:37 EST
Description of problem:
We're using Kerberos 5 for authentication (and AFS homed directories, if it
matters). With the current pam/krb5 configuration on EL5 beta2, the following
all work as expected:
- login (gdm)
- login (console)
- login (ssh, password)
- login (ssh, gssapi)
- kinit, aklog
- kscreensaver (even does the right thing - refreshs my credentials)
However, gnome-screensaver fails to unlock the screen. Having turned on
debugging for the pam_krb5afs module, I see a success message in the log
for every unlock attempt:
gnome-screensaver-dialog: pam_krb5: authentication succeeds for ...
On x86_64 only, I see in addition:
kernel: gnome-screensav: segfault at 0000003456a26730 rip 0000003456a26730
rsp 0000000040a000b8 error 14
On x86, it fails silently.
Accounts with a local password don't have this problem
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
rpm -e pkinit-nss
work around the problem for you?
Hi, yes it does. Unlocking the screen works, no more segfaults.
