Is that an FC1 system? I would guess you are using a test release or
development packages?

On my FC1 I have the /etc/pam.d/smtp file, coming with Sendmail:

$ rpm -qf /etc/pam.d/smtp

Running Postfix that PAM file should come with the Postfix RPM. But in
the current development packages for Sendmail and Postfix I found that
they come with:


So either the MTA switcher has to move that file accordingly which MTA
is installed and used or that is broken in the development. Would be
then worth a check, and a bugzilla search and maybe a new report then.
Your system is plain FC1 though?
