RE: authconfig (2nd sending)


Thank you for the insights.  Primarily I'm working in RHEL AS4, and some in
RHEL5.  I'll look for that manpage in those OS's here pretty soon, and see what
I can come up with.

Authconfig is developed currently by me. It is not related to the PAM
project in any other way than that I am also a PAM developer currently.

authconfig has some manual pages. See man system-auth-ac if you want to
keep some adjustments to PAM configuration. Also the current authconfig
in Fedora 9 doesn't overwrite all files every time. It will overwrite
only files which are affected by the changes in the configuration.
