Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 348891
pam_namespace use of namespace.init needs to be configurable per directory
Last modified: 2008-06-03 05:53:47 EDT
Description of problem:
If the file /etc/security/namespace.init exists it will be exec'd for every
directory being polyinstantiated. I'm currently polyinstantiating about 30
directories and the overhead of these execs has become a major performance
problem especially in light of the fact that I really only need namespace.init
run for /tmp.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
I've patched pam_namespace to use a configuration option run_init/no_init to
have finer control over the use of the namespace.init script.
This bug will be fixed in the next major release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
