Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 75064
krb5-libs does not add entry via chkconfig --add
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:47:06 EDT
Description of Problem:
It would seem that chkconfig needs to be used for various entries to show up in
Doing a perusal of RPMS that didnt implement this I found:
service kdcrotate supports chkconfig, but is not referenced in any runlevel (run
'chkconfig --add kdcrotate')
New feature of RH 8.0 not to add items that arent needed.
Needs to be documented in updated RELEASE-NOTES or known issues. Let technical
support add it to their DB.
Thanks Bill Nottingham.
The problem below is probably related since it looks like a post-install script
I upgraded a stock 8.0 system to the latest patches and lost ssh login
capability. I traced the problem to a lack of the krb5 library entries in
/etc/ld.so.cache. sshd worked initially so I assume that the entries were there
when the system was first installed. The assumption is that the rpm -F of the
krb packages removed the entries and neglected to add the new entries.
'ldconfig /usr/kerberos/lib' got things going again.
Red Hat Linux is no longer supported by Red Hat, Inc. If you are still

This should have been fixed a long time ago.. or at least an entry from the
person at Red Hat that it was being looked at. I am closing because its not
worth tracking anymore.
