Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 603690
proposed changes for Chapter 2. Securing Your Network
Last modified: 2015-04-06 23:19:37 EDT
Description of problem:
After reading Chapter 2. Securing Your Network I have following two proposals:
1. Several topics mention files in /lib directory. Somewhere in the beginning of the book (1. Document Conventions???) there should be a statement saying that on 64-bit systems some files mentioned in the text may be located in /lib64 instead on /lib.
2. 22.214.171.124.1. The su Command
"5. Open the PAM configuration file for su (/etc/pam.d/su)..."
should not be included in the ordered list because it is confusing. According to the precedent text items in the list describe steps for the GUI alternative to
"usermod -G wheel <username>". Therefore the /etc/pam.d/su step (5th) should be excluded from the list since it is not related to the User Manager. Instead, "/etc/pam.d/su" part should be mentioned separately outside (after) the list.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6
