PATCH: properly deal with crypt() returning NULL
Last modified: 2013-07-09 03:47:12 EDT
crypt() can return NULL, so the result of crypt() should not be fed straight into strcmp()
One reason for crypt() returning NULL could be that the machine is in fips mode and the hash algorithm is not allowed.

patch hanlding crypt() returning NULL
Thanks for the patch, I have also sent it to upstream.
This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database. Reassigning to the new owner of this component.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 17 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 17. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '17'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 17's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 17 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora, you are encouraged change the
'version' to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 17's end of life.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
set version to rawhide, patch still not applied.
We use sulogin from util-linux in fedora and not the one from sysvinit. So I don't think it is necessary to patch unused code. I am closing this as wontfix, but if you have any objection please feel free to reopen this bug.
