Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 3954
PAM-ified 'su' does not support pam_putenv()
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:51 EDT
The PAM patch to 'su' does not support pam_putenv(). Some
PAM modules expect to be able to set environment variables
in the child process. A prime example is Kerberos PAM
modules, which want to set the KRBTKFILE environment
variables both for security reasons and to allow a single
user to have multiple 'Kerberos sessions' each with
different ticket files.
Here is a patch that enables this functionality; please
apply it or something like it to the next version of Red
Thank you very much,
Fixed in sh-utils-1.16-24 and later.
