Description of problem:
With the machine set up to get passwd info from an NIS domain, attempts to log
in resulted in an "account expired" error from PAM. This message appeared
despite the fact that the machine was set up without shadow password support,
and the NIS server doesn't provide shadow or account expiration info.
Commenting out the "account required /lib/security/pam_deny.so" line from
/etc/pam.d/system-auth allows users to log in.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install the beta (with or without shadow support, it doesn't matter)
2.Connect to an NIS server
3.Try to log in
Actual Results: Login refused, "User account has expired" shows up in
Expected Results: User should've been allowed to log in.
This is fixed in the current rawhide authconfig.
