#390 memory alignment issues
Closed: Fixed None Opened 12 years ago by jhrozek.

Commit 10e46b4 fixed some memory alignment issues in the pam code. There are, however, more places in the code where we force a pointer into alignment by casting it. We might want to fix these, too, to avoid problems on architectures like ARM and SPARC.

For the record, two known places are the communication with the ldap_child and krb5_child processes.

After applying this patch I was able to get SSSD to authenticate to a Windows 2008 Domain Server using krb5 for auth and ldap for id on my ARM platform.
