NetBSD arcusv.nonus-porta.net 3.0.1 NetBSD 3.0.1 (ARCUSV) #0: Wed Jul 26 22:15:18 EDT 2006 firstname.lastname@example.org:/usr/src/sys/arch/macppc/compile/ARCUSV macppc
gnome-screensaver with Gnome 2.16 doesn't accept correct passwords. It
doesn't appear to be able to actually interface with PAM properly, from
the error I'm seeing in my /var/log/messages file:
Sep 30 15:43:38 arcusv gnome-screensaver-dialog: in _openpam_check_error_code(): pam_sm_authenticate(): unexpected return value 27
I can see that /usr/pkg/libexec/gnome-screensaver-dialog has been set UID,
per the email I found here:
So perhaps there's some new quirks about the 2.16 release.
Install gnome-screensaver with Gnome 2.16.
Wait for it to activate.
Try entering your password.
