Description Bruce Jerrick 2011-10-23 05:55:54 UTC
Description of problem:
The "Requires: pam" of util-linux is inadequate -- /etc/pam.d/{login,remote}
 both do an 'include' of postlogin, but /etc/pam.d/postlogin did not exist
 until pam-1.1.3-7 .
Without /etc/pam.d/postlogin, console login (e.g. on virtual tty2) will

  Login incorrect

with an error message in /var/log/secure:

  ... login: PAM _pam_load_conf_file: unable to open /etc/pam.d/postlogin

So the requires line in th spec file should be:
  Requires: pam >= 1.1.3-7

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
(Note: Same problem exists in coreutils-8.12-2.fc16.i686; a separate
 report has been filed against coreutils .)

This is not likely to happen on a standard spin.  And during OS install,
/etc/pam.d/postlogin is replaced by a symlink to a generated postlogin-ac .
But by examining the following, it is apparent that util-linux really does
need postlogin, and that postlogin first appeared in pam-1.1.3-7:

  $ grep postlogin /etc/pam.d/{login,remote}
  $ rpm -q --changelog pam-1.1.4-4.fc16 | grep -B1 postlogin
  $ rpmls pam-1.1.4-4.fc16 | grep postlogin
