From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2) Gecko/20021203

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The section on PAM module pam_smbpass.so at the bottom of "Configuring Samba" is
obsolete because Psyche does not ship with pam_smbpass.so.


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
rhl-cg(EN)-8.0-HTML-RHI (2002-08-14T17:28-0400)

Additional information: bug #76745

I am trying to find out if leaving this module out was a mistake or on
Comment 2 Jack Tanner 2003-01-31 13:54:50 EST
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 00:41:45 EST
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.
