Package: linuxconf
Version: 1.26r4-2
Severity: normal


according to /usr/share/doc/libpam0g/Debian-PAM-MiniPolicy.gz
/etc/pam.d/linuxconf-pair is wrong in 2 respects:

1. it uses a full path to the PAM module (/lib/security/pam_pwdb.so
instead of pam_pwdb.so):

>The file should _not_ reference the full path of the modules. It only needs
>to reference the basename (eg. "pam_unix.so"). This will ensure that the
>program continues to work even if the module location changes, since
>libpam itself will resolve the location.

2. it uses pam_pwdb.so instead of pam_unix.so:

>Under no circumstances should any program in Debian use the pam_pwdb.so
>module by default. Instead the pam_unix.so module should be used. Most
>programs with RedHat support/default files will reference pam_pwdb.so in
>their example files. Do not use this. There are several problems with
>regard to pam_pwdb.so:

This package has been removed from Debian unstable because it has been
orphaned for a very long time and nobody adopted it.  See
for more information.
