[clug] Some weird crond entries....

OK looks like the following line in system-auth might be the culprit:

account     sufficient    /lib/security/$ISA/pam_succeed_if.so uid < 100

I looked at authconfig and there is no check box. What is the risk if any of
changing this value?

Its a pam configuration issue.  Look at:


It looks like system-auth is autogenerated by the authconfig utility.  I
dont have a fedora box near me so I cant see if the UID limit is a checkbox
in this tool but I guess it might be.
