Description Eric van Gyzen 2016-09-19 17:51:04 UTC
I use xscreensaver on my workstation at work. We use LDAP (AD) for user accounts, so I have to build xscreensaver with PAM support. This is the only package that I need to build from the port; all others I can simply install from prebuilt packages. Would you consider enabling the PAM option by default? It would definitely be more convenient for people in "enterprise" environments.

Hi! Which version of FreeBSD are you using? There's a PR report about xscreensaver and pam not working on FreeBSD 11, so I tohugh it'd check what you are using first.
Comment 2 Eric van Gyzen 2016-09-22 12:59:44 UTC
I'm on 11-STABLE right now: FreeBSD 11.0-PRERELEASE #0 r305779+e1bcca4(stable/11): Tue Sep 13 15:15:04 CDT 2016 This machine ran multiple 10.x releases, then 11-CURRENT, then 11-STABLE. I've never had trouble with xscreensaver and PAM. I lock and unlock my workstation several times every weekday. $ pkg info xsc\* xscreensaver-5.35 Let me know if you need more information.

Is this still relevant?
Comment 4 Eric van Gyzen 2018-05-24 14:00:18 UTC
Yes. The situation has not changed. I would still love to see xscreensaver built with PAM.
Comment 5 Eric van Gyzen 2018-11-27 19:52:51 UTC
I would still like to see this change go in. This is an impediment to using FreeBSD in a corporate network, especially Active Directory.
