Description Tomas Mraz 2007-02-28 19:09:50 UTC
I cloned the RHEL4 bug report as it seems that this one somehow stayed unfixed in Fedora and RHEL5. There was an errata for RHEL4 with this. +++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #161230 +++ Description of problem: Testing has shown that there is a spurious audit message being generated by gdm: type=USER_ERR msg=audit(06/21/05 09:44:32.699:783952) : user pid=2155 uid=root auid=unknown(4294967295) msg='PAM bad_ident: user=? exe="/usr/bin/gdm-binary" (hostname=?, addr=?, terminal=? result=User not known to the underlying authentication module)' This causes the audit system to log what could be interpretted as "suspicious" events. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. install audit package 2. reboot into run level 5 3. ausearch -i -x gdm Actual Results: Among other things you will find a USER_ERR message with no PAM_USER. Additional info: -- Additional comment from email@example.com on 2005-06-21 12:53 EST -- Created an attachment (id=115763) Proposed patch This patch simply disables the checking call to pam which is not necessary when gdm is part of the distribution and not manually installed from sources by user.

This should be built into rawhide now. Is there a RHEL5 bug somewhere too?
Comment 2 Tomas Mraz 2007-03-19 11:19:46 UTC
Probably not. I'll clone this one.
