Description of problem:
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):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Start up Keyboard in system-settings:// and give root-password.
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.
Expected Results: That it would start up without asking my root password.
hrm, the pam config file looks reasonable...
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 188.8.131.52-8, should solve the problem.
Fix confirmed with gdm-184.108.40.206-10.
