You always have to type in the rootpassword when you start gdmsetup, even if you
started a redhat-config-program before.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:

2.Start up Users & Groups in system-settings://, no need for the root-password.
3.Start up Login Screen

Actual Results:  You need to type in the root-password, even tough the keys in
the status area is still there.

hrm, the pam config file looks reasonable...
Comment 2 Havoc Pennington 2002-08-28 18:28:23 EDT
pam_timestamp needed to be before the pam_stack thing, I believe:

auth       sufficient   /lib/security/pam_rootok.so
auth       required     /lib/security/pam_stack.so service=system-auth
auth       sufficient   /lib/security/pam_timestamp.so

moved in, should solve the problem.
