Question porttime in Shadow utils dosent work


Hey Guys ,
Im trying to restrict login times using "logoutd" from shadow utils 4.0.3. I installed the rpm (im using a brazillian distribution of linux - Conectiva linux) and all the pre-reqs, i put logoutd to run on startup, and configure etc/porttime to allow a user to login only after 19:30

*:user01:MoWeFr1900-2300

i has out in etc/logindeffs the parameter for check the porttime file.

well .... the problem is , it dosent work . the user01 login in any time , but sometimes a console window pop-up saying "logon time expires" but nothing is done, i can continue my work until the window pop-ups again.

Any ideas ??????

thanks all

LFS has a patch out for logoutd so it uses the PAM configs in /etc/security, maybe that'll help. If it doesn't or you don't like to path you'll have to strace logoutd and see where it fails.
