Description John Dennis 2010-11-30 15:29:50 UTC
The freeradius-pam-conf file in the SRPM which gets installed as /etc/pam.d/radiusd uses password-auth instead of system-auth. The change from system-auth to password-auth was deliberate in Fedora and RHEL6. Unfortunately the Fedora/RHEL6 version of the file was applied to RHEL5. The RHEL5 version of the file needs to change password-auth back to system-auth.

Comment 2 John Dennis 2011-08-05 14:09:51 UTC
This bug should be addressed by rebasing freeradius2 in a future RHEL5 update.

Comment 3 John Dennis 2011-09-19 20:18:42 UTC
Updated freeradius-pam-conf and spec file. Waiting until new upstream release to rebuild for RHEL5.8 in which FreeRADIUS2 will be a rebase.
