Description Leho Kraav (:macmaN @lkraav) 2012-04-21 17:45:59 UTC
It started with pam_blue failing to parse its configuration when I entered a username with dashes in it. Problem turned out to be yet-another-non-comprehensive-regex. Patch attached, upstream notified, although at another e-mail address since seems to be deadpooled.

Reproducible: Always

So to be clear, this is a locale issue, where [a-z] doesn't match all the way to the end of the alphabet.
Comment 3 Diego Elio Pettenò (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2013-02-24 06:22:34 UTC
Leho did you ever get a response from upstream? I'd like to fix this and another bug I found with pam_blue, but not going to bother unless there is a working upstream.
Comment 4 Leho Kraav (:macmaN @lkraav) 2013-02-24 09:16:48 UTC
No I didn't. I think this project is dead or in need of adoption. I have not been using it lately because there were a few other pam chain reliability issues, which I didn't have time to go into i.e. made the login process too finicky.

I would still have use for bluetooth-based login, though..

Maybe we should treeclean this finally. Upstream is dead for ages and this doesn't look to work with bluez-5
Comment 6 Leho Kraav (:macmaN @lkraav) 2015-07-07 11:12:40 UTC
No objections. I never ended up using it, because too broken, although the idea is nice.
Comment 7 SpanKY gentoo-dev 2015-07-08 06:45:54 UTC
should be all set now in the tree; thanks for the report!
