Name        : pam_afs_session
Product     : Fedora 16
Version     : 2.5
Release     : 1.fc16
URL         : http://www.eyrie.org/~eagle/software/pam-afs-session/
Summary     : AFS PAG and AFS tokens on login
Description :
pam-afs-session is a PAM module intended for use with a Kerberos v5 PAM module
to obtain an AFS PAG (Process Authentication Group) and AFS tokens on login. It
puts every new session in a PAG regardless of whether it was authenticated with
Kerberos and runs a configurable external program to obtain tokens.

Update Information:

New upstream release. From upstream changelog:
Reset the SIGCHLD handler while spawning an external aklog program so that the application SIGCHLD handler isn't invoked when aklog exits. This unfortunately still means that there's a race condition that can cause children to be incorrectly handled if they exit while aklog is running, if the application's SIGCHLD handler is required. There is unfortunately no good general solution to this other than building against Heimdal and using the libkafs interface to obtain tokens instead of an external program.

This update can be installed with the "yum" update program.  Use 
su -c 'yum update pam_afs_session' at the command line.
