Description Emmanuel Galanos 2001-02-27 22:59:33 EST
The PAM SRPM uses a pam-redhat tarball. This is in direct conflict the RPM
philosophy of "pristine" source with patches seperated.
The result is that the source used is a mess and makes upgrading to newer
versions 
of PAM quite difficult (I need to upgrade to a CVS version of pam so I can
use pam_unix as non root to authenticate users other than the caller)

This should be at least partially addressed in 0.75-16, with better fixes after
that.  Thanks!
