Title: Don't require keytab file for kerberos authentication

openSUSE-11.3: Unconfirmed
Requester: Important

Requested by: Todd R (theblackcat)

In openSUSE, when using kerberos it requires that a keytab file be
available for things like kerberized nfs.  However, not all kerberos
servers are set up to provide keytabs.  Someone using openSUSE cannot
access these resources using kerberos at all, as far as I have been
able to find out.  It would be nice if openSUSE removed this
requirement, or at least made it user-configurable whether to require
- it or not.
+ it or not.  It is possible to have kerberos without this requirement
+ since other distribution do it (or at least it was possible when these
+ distributions were last released).
