Re: pam_nologin



This actually has little to do with the PAM list, and I apologize
for continuing it. However, I have to say that this isn't really
a problem with Redhat in my case. My alpha was/is majorly kludged
as were most from the beginning of the Red Hat distribution for them.

I posted here hoping to find a 'quick' fix, though as an after thought,
I feel i probably shouldn't have, and should have posted to one of the
Red Hat lists.

My apologies to all concerned.
