[Bug 809924] New: pam floods /var/log/messages when activating atd

Summary: pam floods /var/log/messages when activating atd
Classification: openSUSE
Product: openSUSE 12.3
Version: Final
Platform: 64bit
OS/Version: SUSE Other
Status: NEW
Severity: Normal
Priority: P5 - None
Component: Basesystem
AssignedTo: bnc-team-screening@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
ReportedBy: bugzilla@xxxxxxxxxxxxx

User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 5.1; rv:19.0) Gecko/20100101

The atd is started by cron every 5 minutes.
These default actions (activation and deactivation) are worth a messages in
/var/log/messages, even if nothing happens:

Mar 16 23:00:01 host/usr/sbin/cron[14188]: pam_unix(crond:session): session
opened for user root by (uid=0)
Mar 16 23:00:01 host /USR/SBIN/CRON[14188]: pam_unix(crond:session): session
closed for user root

The reason is pam in file: /etc/pam.d/crond
commenting off line
session include common-session
reduces the verbosity.

Can this be done by default? Maybe there is a more elegant way to solve it...

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:

Selected "SUSE Other" as operating system, as "openSUSE-12.3" isn't avail in
the list. But this is a "openSUSE-12.3" bugzilla entry.
