Bug#634829: libpam-mklocaluser: login fails when used in conjunction with sssd

Hi Petter,

the script fails at the very first Popen call. If I replace
   proc = subprocess.Popen(cmd, shell-True, stdout=subprocess.PIPE,)
   proc = subprocess.Popen(cmd, shell-True, stdout=None,)

the call succeeds. If the user has a local account, login succeeds, too.
I haven't tested any further combinations (e.g. home directory, primary group membership, etc.) so far.

I wonder why the author have specified subprocess.PIPE, since the actual output is not captured anywhere in the script?

Hi Petter,

nope, doesn't make any difference, I still get the "Unexpected
exception, should never happen ..." message.
Hm.  Not quite sure how to figure out what is missing a child.  Could
you try to add log/print statements to try to figure out what is

I have stopped nscd, no difference. And nslcd isn't installed (do I
need it other than for caching?).
nslcd is only used when libnss_ldapd is used, and it is an alternative
to sssd and should probably be disabled/removed if you want to use

Please send to 634829@bugs.debian.org, to make sure BTS is up to date.

Happy hacking,

best regards
