Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 243088
Incorrect pam service name for command "su -"
Last modified: 2008-08-13 09:49:31 EDT
Description of problem:
"su -" transmit bad service name to pam ( "su-l" instead of "su" ) and refused
authentication (/etc/pam.d/other is use).
add a service name su-l in /etc/pam.d/ and "su -" prompt for a password
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
login with à non-root account
exec "su -"
Pam refused auhtentication (it's refer to default service (other).
coreutils does ship a file /etc/pam.d/su-l for this. What does 'rpm -V
Coreutils provide /etc/pam.d/su-l
rpm -V coreutils :
missing c /etc/pam.d/runuser
missing c /etc/pam.d/runuser-l
S.5....T c /etc/pam.d/su
S.5....T c /etc/pam.d/su-l
Sorry, i don't verify it ... but i don't remove this file after default install.
( i'm going to seach why this file is missing ).
Hi, I'm new coreutils maintainer - is there something new? As Tim said , RHEL-5
coreutils are shipping /etc/pam.d/su-l (/etc/pam.d/runuser-l for runuser -) for
that so I'd like to know if I could close that bugzilla or if you found
Closing INSUFFICIENT_DATA after more than 6 month without response, feel free to reopen it if you find something relevant about the problem (how it happened that the runuser pam files were misssing).
