The most recent samba-2.2.7-1.7.3 errata release for Valhalla is missing this
PAM module, too.

Patch to samba.spec for samba-2.2.7-2.src.rpm

I don't know if 'pam_smbpass' was removed from this RPM due to security issues,
but this patch reenables this PAM module.

You can recompile the samba packages with:

rpm -ivh samba-2.2.7-2.src.rpm
cd /usr/src/redhat/SPECS
patch < samba.spec.patch
rpmbuild -bb samba.spec

As you can see, I only removed patch #7 which is no longer needed (it causes to
duplicate an object module in pam_smbpass.so compilation), enabled pam_smbpass
during configuration, and uncomented the lines regarding to pam_smbpass
inclussion on samba RPM (I also modified the copy of documentation files to
avoid inclusion of source and temporary object files into docs/pam_smbpass).

Comment 6 Javier P 2003-08-27 13:15:21 UTC
Samba 2.2.7-5.8.0 also lacks pam_smbpass.so

Comment 7 Michael Schwendt 2004-07-27 14:47:34 UTC
triage->duplicate (78881) : Same resolution as bug 78881 comment 2 and
comment 3?

Comment 8 Jay Fenlason 2004-11-16 22:23:54 UTC
pam_smbpass is included in current Samba rpms.
