Description Paul de Vrieze (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2002-01-29 13:46:35 UTC
I found out that the web-management tool of samba (swat) doesn't work when pam 
is used with MD5 passwords and pam disabled in the config. Samba compares the 
code only with the crypt of the password and (of course) fails.

(Swat uses unix account, NOT smbpasswd aparently (really I checked it using the 
debugger)) Because of this I recommend putting pam on in the ebuild file, or 
hack the appropriate file (pass_check.c) to also check on MD5

since the pam config file is pointing to the smbpasswd
file i dont have a problem with making pam required for samba.

people can configure their pam differently if they desire.
