RE: pam tally and faillog questions



Once upon a time, xscreensaver could not write to the faillog for security reasons (a user's xscreensaver is owned by the user). AFAIK, this problem was never resolved. I get around it by copying the /etc/pam.d/system-auth text into the /etc/pam.d/gnome-screensaver (substitute your screensaver module here), but I remove the pam_tally lines. Not as secure as I'd like, but it’s the best I can do.

HTH,

Bill Tangren

I am still seeing this misbehavior in RHEL 5

I found a Bugzilla reference <https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=166682>
but could not determine if it had actually been fixed.

Any clues for this clueless one ?
