Red Hat PAM

There is clearly some sort of secret magic that I am missing, since the evidence that I currently have available to me would indicate that the PAM subsystem shipped with RHEL4 is an erratically-working, badly implemented pile of crap that does things like losing stored auth tokens between calling pam_authenticate and pam_sm_setcred.

Also, authconfig blows.

People wonder why I prefer Debian so strongly to Red Hat. It's because when I use Debian, SHIT ACTUALLY WORKS.

I am now going to go off and start a new novel and try to forget about sshd, PAM, Kerberos, and AFS before I hunt someone down in the streets and mutilate them with a fork.
