Description Patrick C. F. Ernzer 2005-06-28 15:41:41 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050524 Fedora/1.0.4-4 Firefox/1.0.4

Description of problem:
RHEL4 has authd instead of identd. We should reflect this in the docs.

The one place where I found it was "4.5.3. Insecure Services", but there may be other places.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
rhel-sg(EN)-4-HTML-RHI (2004-09-30T17:12)

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. wonder why one can't find an identd rpm
2. search for identd in our docs
3. find the rhel-sg

Actual Results:  outdated info in docs

Expected Results:  updated info in docs

Additional info:

maybe something along the lines of
  - authd (this was called identd in previous RHEL releases)

Comment 1 Mike Behm 2006-02-10 18:40:43 UTC
I made the requested change to the rhel-sg.

I see that the Reference Guide has a commented-out section on
identd, but nothing about authd. Would it be possible to restore
that section (sysconfig.sgml lines 994-1019) with a straight
replacement of authd for inetd? 

Note that there does not appear to be a man page for authd.

Comment 2 Patrick C. F. Ernzer 2006-03-08 08:56:50 UTC
just looked at version 1.4.3-7.1 from FC devel, that has a README.html (did not
check the current RHEL4 version as I wanted to be sure to check the latest

I suggest you take that as a starting point for the docs. Especially the section
showing differences from pidentd

Adding 'cc for tracking

Comment 4 Michael Hideo 2007-10-23 02:50:19 UTC
Removing automation notification

Comment 5 Don Domingo 2008-01-25 05:52:04 UTC
verified that this is already in source. marking as MODIFIED, to be resolved
when rhel-sg is updated next on live site.
