pam .76.5 and xscreensaver lockouts
I have seen no bug reports nor discussion on this list about recent
trouble with libpam* 0.76.4/5 on sid and xlock/xscreensaver.
I have a current sid system (except for the pam modules and libraries
which I have had to downgrade to 0.72-35).
When I first accepted the pam upgrades to .76.4 and locked my screen via
xcreensaver/xlockmore, my password was not accepted.
I had to kill the process from a console (from which I was fortunately
able to login). I downgraded to 0.72-35, and the locking again
I had the same problem with 0.76.5 (the current sid version)
The relevant lines in
auth required pam_unix.so nullok
auth required pam_unix_auth.so
My /var/log/auth.logs don't seem to reveal anything useful other than I
was denied access.
Is anybody else having this problem?
