Hi fellow maintainers :-)

Automatically configuring etc/kde3/kdm/Xaccess is not policy compliant
for the moment as one needs to edit a conffile.

A solution might be to include some debconf question...

Cheers

Luk

The same is true for etc/pam.d/kdm where some people want to add auth
optional pam_group.so

Cheers

Here is a small update on this bug.  The PAM setting part is no longer
relevant, as the pam.d/kdm file now include the common-* files, which
are not part of a package.

The /etc/kde3/kdm/Xaccess file is still a bit problematic, as it is
still part of the kdm package, and modifying it automatically at
install time is problematic.

Happy hacking,

Hey you,

could you please comment on this bug? It's really important for us to fix 
#311188 for Lenny, so that upgrades from Lenny to Lenny+1 will work without 
problems for Debian Edu installations.

Thank you.


regards,
	Holger

Hi,

afaics, the solution suggested by luk could be done (debconf).
Now, someone must implement debconf questions for /etc/kde3/kdm/Xaccess.

I would be happy to include a patch for that :)

for the record, Sune suggests:

cheers,

Fathi
