pam (1.1.8-3.2ubuntu2) xenial; urgency=medium
* debian/patches-applied/cve-2015-3238.patch: removed manpage changes
so they don't get regenerated during build and cause a multiarch
installation issue. (LP: #1558114)
2016-03-16 - Marc Deslauriers <>
pam (1.1.8-3.2ubuntu1) xenial; urgency=medium
* Merge from Debian unstable. Remaining changes:
- debian/libpam-modules.postinst: Add PATH to /etc/environment if it's
not present there or in /etc/security/pam_env.conf. (should send to
- debian/libpam0g.postinst: only ask questions during update-manager when
there are non-default services running.
- debian/libpam0g.postinst: check if gdm is actually running before
trying to reload it.
- debian/libpam0g.postinst: the init script for 'samba' is now named
'smbd' in Ubuntu, so fix the restart handling.
- Change Vcs-Bzr to point at the Ubuntu branch.
- debian/patches-applied/series: Ubuntu patches are as below ...
- debian/patches-applied/ubuntu-rlimit_nice_correction: Explicitly
initialise RLIMIT_NICE rather than relying on the kernel limits.
- debian/patches-applied/pam_umask_usergroups_from_login.defs.patch:
Deprecate pam_unix's explicit "usergroups" option and instead read it
from /etc/login.def's "USERGROUP_ENAB" option if umask is only defined
there. This restores compatibility with the pre-PAM behaviour of login.
- debian/patches-applied/pam_motd-legal-notice: display the contents of
/etc/legal once, then set a flag in the user's homedir to prevent
showing it again.
- debian/update-motd.5, debian/libpam-modules.manpages: add a manpage
for update-motd, with some best practices and notes of explanation.
- debian/patches/update-motd-manpage-ref: add a reference in pam_motd(8)
to update-motd(5)
- debian/local/common-session{,-noninteractive}: Enable pam_umask by
default, now that the umask setting is gone from /etc/profile.
- debian/local/pam-auth-update: Add the new md5sums for pam_umask addition.
- Build-depend on libfl-dev in addition to flex, for cross-building
- Add /usr/local/games to PATH.
- Adjust debian/patches-applied/update-motd to write to
/run/motd.dynamic, as sysvinit/ssh/login in Debian have been changed
to use this file and no longer links /etc/motd to /var/run/motd.
- debian/patches-applied/pam_umask_usergroups_from_login.defs.patch:
include patch to autogenerated manpage file
- debian/patches-applied/pam-loginuid-in-containers: pam_loginuid:
Update patch with follow-up changes to loginuid.c
- debian/patches-applied/extrausers.patch: Add a pam_extrausers module
that is basically just a copy of pam_unix but looks at
/var/lib/extrausers/{group,passwd,shadow} instead of /etc/
- debian/libpam-modules-bin.install: install the helper binaries for
pam_extrausers to /sbin
- debian/rules: Make pam_extrausers_chkpwd sguid shadow
- debian/patches-applied/extrausers.patch: Ship pre-generated man page
- debian/patches-applied/pam-limits-nofile-fd-setsize-cap: cap the default
soft nofile limit read from pid 1 to FD_SETSIZE.
- debian/control: have libpam-modules recommend update-motd package
