Description Daniel Senie 1999-01-09 14:38:31 UTC
The pam control file for PPP seems to have some problems.

first, it's the only PAM file that does not have paths in
front of the PAM modules. The content was:

auth       required     pam_nologin.so
auth       required     pam_pwdb.so shadow nullok
account    required     pam_pwdb.so
session    required     pam_pwdb.so

I changed this to put /lib/security/ in front of each pam_
as is the case with all of the other modules.

I also removed "shadow" since I don't use shadow

I have verified that the paths are indeed missing from the config file

This has been assigned to a developer for further review.

Comment 2 Cristian Gafton 1999-01-14 07:12:59 UTC
Pam knows were to look for the modules by default, so the lack of the
pathnames is not a problem (all files should be modified not to have
path names, but we can not do that for completely different reasons)

Also, "disabling" shadow won't help a bit on a non-shadowed system, as
that is completely transparent, but it will cause great problems on
the shadowed systems.
