The section on PAM module pam_smbpass.so at the bottom of "Configuring Samba" is
obsolete because Psyche does not ship with pam_smbpass.so.

I am trying to find out if leaving this module out was a mistake or on

Comment 2 Jack Tanner 2003-01-31 18:54:50 UTC
What is the status of this?

I got here because with that pam_smbpass.so entry in /etc/pam.d/system-auth, I'd
get something like this:

# passwd user
(user) Enter current password:
passwd: Module is unknown

It was a stroke of luck (a back-up /etc/pam.d/system-auth) that saved my butt.

Also see bug #78881.

Comment 4 Tammy Fox 2003-02-11 05:41:45 UTC
OK. So I will keep the section in future versions of the manual since it has
been added back to the package.

I'll also add a docs errata stating that the module was not included in RHL 8.0
but will be included in a future errata.
