Description Karl Mikaelsson cendio 2016-03-10 14:39:33 CET
Some platforms, notably eLux RP, uses Heimdal to provide Kerberos libraries and tools.

Our ThinLinc client requires MIT Kerberos5, a fact which sadly isn't mentioned in the TAG.

When trying to log in using a Kerberos ticket, the client fails with:

 - a "Kerberos ticket authentication failed" error shown to the user
 - an error log that says that libgssapi_krb5.so is nowhere to be found.

See bug 7311 for using alternative kerberos implementations on Windows.
