I'm am still getting the various 'unknown item' configuration errors
after re-installing shadow for PAM functionality. But I am still able
to login/su. I patched the shadow-4.0.9 source with
shadow-4.0.9-LINUX_PAM-fixes-1.patch. But that did not solve the
problem. I even tried shadow-4.0.10 (with the corresponding patch)
with no success. It's still the same subset of variables from the
/etc/login.defs file that everyone else experiences. I starting to think
that maybe I have a problem not related to the erroneous message
bug of shadow/PAM. Is there a way I can verify that the problem is
shadow/PAM bug, or if I need to look at my system for errors?
Also, I have found two different 3 deferent versions of the patch
I found 2 different shadow-4.0.9-Linux_PAM_fixes-1.patch's. One
has an entry in the header that say 'Initial Package Version: 4.0.9'
and the other has the entry 'Initial Package Version: 4.0.10'. And
they both are different. There's also the less relevant
shadow-4.0.10-Linux_PAM_fixes-2.patch, which I applied to 4.0.10,
with no success. I'd hate to stray so far from 4.0.9 from the blfs
pre6.1 book by using shadow-220.127.116.11. But at least in the change
log, it has the erroneous messages bug as being corrected.
Any insight to my problem?
