Description Mike Ely 2004-05-19 14:50:42 UTC
ON: SuSE 9.1, didn't use the included RPM files due to force of habit mainly
Computer: P4 (1.5) on a crufty Intel i845 mobo requiring a 1.5v AGP vidcard

DID: configure --with-smbwrapper-yes --with-ads=yes --with-automount=yes
--with-smbmount=yes --with-pam=yes --with pam_smbpass=yes --with-winbind=yes
(note: I'm sure some of these could have been omitted, but it normally Just
Works, so that's how I've been doing my configures)

Configure script had to be run a couple of times as it did correctly catch some
missing deps.  Eventually, script ran, samba was compiled, life appeared good. 
But winbind wasn't working right - it'd start but wbinfo -u or -g threw a
couldn't connect error.  A quick look in /var/log/messages turned up this info:

May 19 14:16:11 workstation kdm: :0[3579]: PAM adding faulty module:
workstation:~ # cat /var/log/messages | grep krb5
May 19 14:16:11 workstation kdm: :0[3579]: PAM unable to
May 19 14:16:11 workstation kdm: :0[3579]: PAM [dlerror:

Aha!  I installed the pam_krb5 rpm and suddenly all was well =]

I guess this isn't exactly a show-stopper, but it'll probably reduce the support
burden to catch this missing dep at configure time.

Forgot to mention - I'm using the MIT Kerberos (1.3.3) from their binary
distribution.  Again, force of habit - SuSE likes Heimdal but had more trouble
getting that kerb to work.

This is a pam_krb5 issue and has nothing to do with 
Samba or winbindd.  Sorry.
