pam vs /etc/environment
I've seen these in my system logs (and via logcheck) a lot,
and didn't know where to start looking:
Jul 14 14:13:17 server login: PAM pam_putenv: delete non-existent entry; . /etc/postgresql/postgresql.env
Jul 14 14:13:17 server PAM_unix: (login) session opened for user will by (uid=0)
i tried a ssh login, and finally managed to get it to work
(instead of sick and twisted telnet) and in addition to /etc/motd
and 'no mail' i saw this:
Bad line in /etc/environment: . /etc/postgresql/postgresql.env
in /etc/environment, there's nothing but two lines:
and 'dot' is sh/bash shortcut for 'source commands from ~'...
% cd /etc
% grep -r /etc/environment *
pam.d/login:# This module parses /etc/environment (the standard for setting
i checked /etc/pam.d/login and found
# This module parses /etc/environment (the standard for setting
# environ vars) and also allows you to use an extended config
# file /etc/security/pam_env.conf.
# (Replaces the `ENVIRON_FILE' setting from login.defs)
auth required pam_env.so
i do also still have a vestigial /etc/pam.conf file, but it's tiny
and nothing but comments.
so what have i broken?
