Ok, I'm a geek - I admit it ...

but when your selection of Moz tabs are:

http://www.padl.com/Contents/Documentation.html

http://www.novell.com/coolsolutions/appnote/14511.html

http://groups-beta.google.com/group/linux.redhat.pam/browse_frm/thread/51d5096d23d546a5/2958f4c5e358e3eb?q=debug+log&rnum=10&hl=en#2958f4c5e358e3eb

you just might be accused of being a bit ... over the edge.

No, I haven't discovered a new obsession, just trying to help out a vendor install some stuff at the office for a Proof Of Concept going on next week. Unfortunately for him our Info Security folks are becoming a bit picky about the security environment and are insisting the application be installed with LDAP (our standard) authentication. All well and good, and the app supports PAM so we >>should<< be ok ... but... (isn't there always a but?) this guys never installed the app on SUSE with PAM going to LDAP (and a Novell eDirectory at that!) and we can't authenticate. Boo! Hiss!!

Which leads me back to my tabs... I certainly learned more about Linux PAM than I ever wanted to know, but by gum, I did discover some things we could use. So now the question is, do I hope they >>don't<< figure it out tonight and I can come in and suggest some solutions? Or just hope all our problems disappear and I can just tuck this clump (? clutch? dollop?) of trivia away for (another) rainy day?

Tune in tomorrow on "As the Installation Turns..." (cue theme)

I've never been happy with PAM...to me, it's just another layer that can have security holes in it, and it can be a pain to get set up right.

I do know a bit about Linux...read my article!
