Description dunwoody 1999-08-14 09:20:13 UTC
In pam-0.68-1, /lib/security/ references
the symbol yperr_string, which leads to messages like
the following in /var/log/messages:

/lib/security/ undefined symbol:
Aug 14 01:24:34 dunwoody1 su: PAM adding faulty module:

I'm wondering if perhaps there is a new dependency from pam
to some other package that I don't happen to have installed,
and the pam-0.68-1 rpm doesn't enforce that dependency?

Comment 1 Cristian Gafton 1999-08-27 23:15:59 UTC
Fixed in pam-0.68-3 and later
