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The section on PAM module pam_smbpass.so at the bottom of "Configuring Samba" is
obsolete because Psyche does not ship with pam_smbpass.so.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):
Additional information: bug #76745
I am trying to find out if leaving this module out was a mistake or on
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.
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.
