#9485 closed defect (obsolete)

Netatalk needs to be configured without shadow passwords

Reported by: anonymous Owned by: flyn
Priority: normal Milestone: Barrier Breaker 14.07
Component: packages Version: Trunk
Keywords: Cc:


Password authentication in the netatalk package from trunk does not work.
Adding "--without-shadow" to the configuration options in the makefile fixes the problem.

As of r27035 (and all builds for the past year since I started using netatalk), netatalk as is works fine for me. I have a user "transmission" in both /etc/passwd and /etc/shadow. In /etc/passwd the password field has "!" in it, in shadow it has the encrypted password. I have shadow support enabled in the global build settings and in the busybox login/password menu. My afpd.conf looks like this:

- -noddp -unixcodepage utf8 -uampath /usr/lib/uams -uamlist, -defau
ltvol /etc/netatalk/AppleVolumes.default -systemvol /etc/netatalk/AppleVolumes.system -nouservol -sl
eep 48 -icon -ipaddr -nodebug

I apparently build my firmware without shadow passwords. I thought that was the default option?

I moved to Backfire 10.03.1-rc5 now. There seems to be no shadow password support in the provided image although netatalk from the standard repository is configured for shadow passwords:
