Last modified: 2011-05-19 08:37:37 EDT
Description of problem:
There are no fprintd packages in s390(x) repositories, but /etc/pam.d/system-auth still contains following line:
auth sufficient pam_fprintd.so
which was added by authconfig.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1) ask inventory/beaker to reserve a RHEL6.1-20110202.n.0 Server machine for you
Actual results (seen in /var/log/secure):
Feb 11 09:55:04 ibm-z10-05 su: PAM unable to dlopen(/lib64/security/pam_fprintd.so): /lib64/security/pam_fprintd.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Feb 11 09:55:04 ibm-z10-05 su: PAM adding faulty module: /lib64/security/pam_fprintd.so
fingerprint auth disabled on s390(x) --> no error messages like these
This is fixed by cherry-picking a9f694d27a67838c4caf58ba7e8df888e15f032c from master.

Does updates=http://clumens.fedorapeople.org/676854.img fix this?
This has already been pushed, so it should be fixed up in the next build of anaconda. Please test that instead of the referenced updates image. Thanks.
On s390x with the 0308.n.1 tree:
# cat /etc/pam.d/system-auth | grep fprint
