Default /etc/pam.d/system-auth changes in update

I just did an update, and PAM was was one of the modules.

Yum has placed /etc/pam.d/system-auth.rpmnew and it's different than
the existing file, which is actually a link to system-auth-ac.

The files are slightly different, and I'm wondering if the differences
are important. I can't find any docs on the reason for the change, so
before I spend time becoming a PAM expert, I'm wondering if anyone knows
why this change was made, or were it might be documented.

Thanks,
--Bill

The exact same question came up two weeks ago. Look here:

And the answers were confusing at least me ;-)

To me as well, having now read the thread. No one seems to know why the
changes were made, only that they *were* made. I'm still hoping that there
might be documentation on the impact of these changes.

Does anyone know, or have a link to, why system-auth was changed in the
most recent update to PAM?

TIA,
--Bill

It wasn't changed in 5.2 'cause it was that way in 5.1 - see
http://lists.centos.org/pipermail/centos/2008-June/102152.html.


Since I didn't know the truth behind the system-auth "mystery" myself,
here's some commands I ran:


yum groupinfo Base | grep -E "auth|pam"
rpm -q --whatrequires pam
rpm -q --whatrequires authconfig
rpm -qi firstboot-tui
rpm -qipl
http://vault.centos.org/5.0/os/i386/CentOS/authconfig-5.3.12-2.el5.i386.rpm

rpm -qipl authconfig
man system-auth-ac
man authconfig
