Description Bastien Nocera 2008-10-31 18:47:05 UTC
Created attachment 322115 [details]

Attached is a patch against the current HG tip to add support for pam_fprintd.

It should be enabled by default, so that users just need to enroll a fingerprint to start using it.

pam_fprintd isn't in Fedora yet, but should be in as soon as the patches get accepted upstream.

Comment 1 Tomas Mraz 2008-11-03 08:41:27 UTC
I'd prefer to not enable it by default for a while so eventual problems are sorted out first.

Comment 2 Bastien Nocera 2008-11-03 13:14:00 UTC
OK, feel free to commit it with this change. At the same time, pam_fprintd isn't installed by default, and isn't available yet, so having it enabled by default early in the F11 process would help.

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 10 development cycle.
Changing version to '10'.
