#1157 closed defect (fixed)

Linux-PAM has cracklib listed as optional dependency

Reported by: kpfleming@… Owned by: DJ Lucas
Priority: high Milestone:
Component: BOOK Version: SVN
Severity: normal Keywords:


I built Linux-PAM last week, and cracklib was _not_ optional; the configure script failed to complete without cracklib installed.

I did not find any configure option to disable the use of cracklib, so I believe this should be moved to a required (not optional) dependency.

Yes, that's what I saw too.

Adding untested patch. Currently unable to test, but it will work to kill the error, but I don't know about the build. Assumptons are bad, but I'd assume if HAVE_LIBCRACK were set to "NO" then the cracklib module would not be built...if that is not the case, then it should be extended to make the check for "HAVE_LIBCRACK" in the cracklib dir makefile. This could easily be attached to the linkage patch with the rest of them.
