Description Alain D D Williams 2001-05-09 08:39:41 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux 2.4.4-addw1 i686; en-US; 0.8.1)

Description of problem:
pam_access fails with wu-ftpd, unresolved symbols.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
Insert into /etc/pam.d/ftp the following line:
auth       required     /lib/security/pam_access.so

Try to do a ftp login to the machine.

Actual Results:  I can't login and in /var/log/messages I find:
May  9 13:37:46 springbok ftpd[4016]: PAM unable to resolve symbol:
May  9 13:37:46 springbok ftpd[4016]: PAM unable to resolve symbol:
May  9 13:37:48 springbok ftpd[4016]: failed login from
localhost.localdomain []
May  9 13:37:49 springbok ftpd[4016]: FTP session closed

Expected Results:  I would have expected to be able to login

Additional info:

It also seems to happen when I put the line into the /etc/pam.d/login file.
The machine in a reasonably clean install, the only major addition is the
latests ximian desktop.

Comment 2 Alain D D Williams 2001-05-09 18:00:21 EDT
After looking at the source I find that the problem was mine. I invoked the pam
module as a module-type 'auth' - since I wanted to authenticate by user and
If I invoke it as 'account' it works, ie:
	account required     /lib/security/pam_access.so
I would like to change the bug to a documentation bug. The overall level of PAM
documentation is bad. But in the interim this bug is closed.
