Slackware 15 update, Pam/Kerberos

Post by ChuangTzu » 16. Nov 2019, 22:23

FYI, it looks like whenever Slackware 15 arrives it may include Pam/Kerberos...
PV: Good to hear that there will be interest in testing this :-)

If we do the krb5/PAM, don't expect any support for not running it. It'll be mandatory unless you wish to figure out what and how to recompile and reconfigure everything needed to get rid of it.

That said, if it is added I expect to make it so that you won't even notice that it's there. So unlike PA, for example, there shouldn't really be any scenarios where certain things do not work as well because the system has krb5/PAM.

I was guessing that this might be one of the reasons that is delaying a 15.0 release. From the moment pam hits current, I don't expect a final 15.0 release for at least a few months, so we probably still have a long way to go.
