RE: Odd pam_limits.so behavior on Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS 2.1

Hi again Jan,

I did think about upgrading PAM using source code, but quite frankly I rather avoid it. Everything on this server has been installed using RPMs and mixing both worlds might not be the best of all ideas. I'll try installing Fedora's RPM using a test environment but again, that's not really a choice for a production environment. Thank you for the suggestion anyway.

I just verified the same behavior on a Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS 3. Perhaps if somebody at Red Hat could check on that issue we could get a new PAM RPM...

Yes, but painful.
You need to get a recent, up to date, version of Linux-PAM.
I fixed this bug after 0.75 was released (around version 0.76 of Linux-PAM), so the only way is to get the real thing. But, then you will have to rewrite all you pam configs as redhat uses non-standart hacks in their pam (mainly pam_stack.so).

You can get it at: ftp://ftp.kernel.org/pub/linux/libs/pam/pre/library/Linux-PAM-0.77.tar.bz2
