Description wingc 2005-05-06 21:35:51 UTC
Description of problem:

Some of the debugging statements in src/minikafs.c are wrapped inside
conditionals like this:

    if (options->debug > 1) {

The only problem is that options->debug can only equal 0 or 1 when pam_krb5
parses its options. There is no way to get all the debugging output when you
specify 'debug' in the PAM configuration files.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Tested on pam_krb5-2.1.2-1 from RHEL4

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Add 'debug' to the command line options for pam_krb5, e.g. in
Actual results:

Not all the debugging statments from src/minikafs.c generate output in the syslog.

Expected results:

Some of the missing debugging output would have been useful, such as "got error
determining file server for cell", etc.
