Description Jung Tae-young 2009-04-08 06:08:48 UTC
Yesterday I installed a new system with gentoo linux. I choose exim + dovecot, but smtp-auth makes problem. I tracked the logs and I found what was the probelm. After copying /etc/pam.d/pop3 to /etc/pam.d/smtp, smtp-auth trouble was gone. Is there any reason that /etc/pam.d/smtp is not included in mailbase? Reproducible: Always

(In reply to comment #0) > Is there any reason that /etc/pam.d/smtp is not included in mailbase? I'd say because it's provided by MTAs like postfix: # qfile -Cv /etc/pam.d/smtp mail-mta/postfix-2.5.5 (/etc/pam.d/smtp) Let's see what mailbase maintainers think about this.

Then this bug is the bug of exim ebuild. # epm -ql exim | grep smtp # Then this wass the bug of exim ebuild. Since we need this file if we use mta and every mta has dependency on mailbase, I think /etc/pam.d/smtp should be installed by mailbase not by particular mta.

postfix just does: pamd_mimic_system smtp auth account is there any other mta that installs /etc/pam.d/smtp ? if not, having mailbase do it prob makes sense.

exim does: pamd_mimic system-auth exim auth account I guess that could be rewritten as: pamd_mimic_system exim auth account e.g. (system-auth,) auth and account are common.
