Description borgia 1998-12-26 11:15:24 UTC
pamconfig is still required by pam, though the description
says otherwise:

[root@deunan /etc]# rpm -qi pamconfig

Description :
This package has been made obsolete by pam-0.56, and is
provided for
compatibility purposes only.  If the command:

  rpm -q --whatrequires pamconfig

returns no package names, you may remove this package with:

  rpm -e pamconfig
[root@deunan /etc]# rpm -e pamconfig
removing these packages would break dependencies:
        pamconfig >= 0.51 is needed by pam-0.64-3
[root@deunan /etc]# rpm -q --whatrequires pamconfig

I have verified this to be true. It has been assigned to a developer
for further review.

Comment 2 Cristian Gafton 1999-01-04 17:43:59 UTC
There are 3rd party packages on the net that depend on that
