Description Graham Leggett 2008-03-03 18:34:16 EST
After an RHEL5 system has been configured to log users in against an LDAP
server, and the LDAP based user is successfully able to log in at the console,
an attempt is made to log into X using gdm.

The attempt fails immediately, and the following message is logged to

 localuser:minfrin being added to access control list
 No profile for user 'minfrin' found

There is no clear indication as to which program is logging this message, or
even if this message is relevant.

The user directory is empty - it has just been created from scratch.
Comment 1 Graham Leggett 2008-03-03 20:05:14 EST
Lots of digging uncovers this IRC log:


It mentions that a package called "sabayon" might somehow be involved.

Sabayon is installed on the machine, but rpm -qi doesn't reveal anything
specific about what sabayon does.

Sabayon has an entry in /etc/pam.d, which links to /etc/pam.d/config-auth. The
only entry in config-auth to do with LDAP is the "auth" section in pam. I
suspect that system-config-authentication isn't setting the
/etc/pam.d/config-auth file correctly, need to dig further.
