Heh heh, my thanks also. When I saw similar output I was pretty sure I'd be reinstalling PAM and possibly more besides. What a relief!

BTW, what actually causes this?

I had the same issue... restarting vixie-cron took care of it... What causes this?

Thank you,

Jeff

This also fixed an issue i was having with:

Code:
cron[5819]: PAM unable to dlopen(/lib64/security/pam_unix.so): /lib64/libc.so.6: version `GLIBC_2.14' not found (required by /lib64/security/pam_unix.so)



I assume the cause is that it got updated but the cron daemon still looks for the old version which isn't there any more, till its restarted.


Edit: Gah sorry, so many pages open on the site i misread the date from another one as this, didn't mean to necro the thread.

No worries - this thread was still useful in December of 2017 when it was the first Google result for the same issue which I just experienced after the 17.0 profile update...
