Description manishv 1999-05-26 23:46:38 EDT
The pam_console.so module unnecessarily uses glib for
g_malloc and g_realloc.  I cannot find any other glib
function used in pam console.  This was really annoying when
I decided to try glib-1.3.  IMHO, a package as critical as
PAM for the system should depend on as few packages as
possible.  Since pam_console seems pretty linux specific,
malloc and realloc should work just fine.

This issue has been forwarded to a developer for further review
Comment 2 manishv 1999-05-27 18:21:59 EDT
Hmm, this was discarded but the explanation said that it was being
forwarded to a developer.  In any case I have added a patch to this
bug report following this message to remove the 2 glib calls in
chmod.c in pam_console.

Never mind this bug.  I am an idiot.  I must not have grepped the .y
file in pam_console when looking for glib calls.
