See bug https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=347144: user requests a way for configuring pam_mount.

We already have Feature #300967 for some part, maybe other parts of it could be used in samba-client module.

Michael, please check which parts might have sense

Hmm, maybe we should think about a general solution. We use currently pam_mount for encrypted home directiories. Mounting samba shares is requested and now we have a general request to configure pam_mount.

The pam_mount configuration is more or less the same like /etc/fstab. It provides all filesystem types which are supported via fstab and some more with special handling from pam_mount directly.

The main difference is, that it is possible to have general rules which applies for all users logging-in, groups of users (supporting uid ranges, by guid or guid ranges or group names) and rules which applies only for a single user.

For single user configuration a plugin for the users module would be good, but for more general rules a special module would be the best way. Such a module should have an API which can be used by other modules like samba-client to push in special rules needed fo this kind of configuration.

Doing a factory upgrade as

zyper ref&&zypper -d dup&&zypper dup

This beta1 release did overwrite my /etc/pam.d configs that use pam_mount for automaticly mounting the encrypted /home. I did search for a yast config variable in /etc/sysconfig to keep my pam_mount configs intact in case further upgrades are coming. But I didn't find any viable variable ....

And for to configure pam_mount with yast gui you need to configure some nis, kerberos servers

pam_mount dose not depend on NIS or Kerberos.
