kdesu doesn't support PAM
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:45:29 EDT
Description of Problem:
Since kdesu and applications using libkdesu don't support pam, pam_timestamp
etc. aren't working for kcontrol modules.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Hmm, kdesu is using either the "su" binary or "ssh" to gain root status. Both
are using PAM for auth as far as i know. So i don't see the problem with it.
If anyone can confirm that this really doesn't work, please reopen.
