Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 4192
XFree86-3.3.4-2 requires pam >= 0.66-19, not available
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:51 EDT
The XFree86-3.3.4-2 package requires pam >= 0.66-19, which
is not available from rawhide or from updates.
Will be fixed in the next Raw Hide release. The sequence went:
build X -> release Raw Hide -> build pam.

The new 3.3.4 XFree86 packages seem to be dependent on
pam-0.66-19 or greater. The Rawhide site has nothing newer
than pam-0.66-18, so the XFree86 update cannot be installed.

I was unable to install XFree86-3.3.4-2 because pam-0.66-19
is required but not yet available on
ftp://rawhide.redhat.com/i386/RedHat/RPMS. Not knowing
the nature of the dependency, I was afraid to rpm --force.

the dependency is that Xconsole won't work, IIRC.
