Linux-PAM-0.57preC



Hi,

Just a note to announce Linux-PAM-0.57preC is available (from my
pre-release) directory:

Best wishes

Andrew

* fixed erroneous syslog warning in pam_listfile (Savochkin Andrey
  Vladimirovich, whole file reformatted by Cristian)

* modified pam_securetty to return PAM_IGNORE in the case that the user's
  name is not known to the system (was previously, PAM_USER_UNKNOWN). The
  Rationale is that pam_securetty's sole purpose is to prevent superuser
  login anywhere other than at the console. It is not its concern that the
  user is unknown - only that they are _not_ root. Returning
  PAM_IGNORE, however, insures that the pam_securetty can never be used to
  "authenticate" a non-existent user. (Cristian Gafton with bug report from
  Roger Hu)

* Modified pam_nologin to display the no-login message when the user
  is not known. The return value in this case is still PAM_USER_UNKNOWN.
  (Bug report from Cristian Gafton)

* Added NEED_LCKPWD for pam_unix/ This is used to define the locking
  functions and should only be turned on if you don't have them in
  your libc.

* tidied up pam_lastlog and pam_pwdb: removed function that was never used.
