Description Aleksey Nogin 2001-06-08 13:24:38 EDT
After upgrading to RH7.1 I found myself unable to use pam_userdb module:

Jun  8 10:24:52 mojave snauth[1474]: PAM [dlerror:
/lib/security/pam_userdb.so: undefined symbol: conversation]

Recompiling the program (snauth) under RH7 didn't change anything.

This is a known PAM bug, see
for a fix.
Comment 2 Aleksey Nogin 2001-08-16 17:21:18 EDT
The newer pam-0.75 package in rawhide does not have this problem.
