Thanks for response. You are right, the sudo prompt is overriden by pam_krb5.

I have executed the command 'sudo -p BLAH ls', the output was
"Password for address@hidden:"
wb is my user, LOCALDOMAIN is the krb5 realm.

You're probably on the right side =)

I recently upgraded my network to use kerberos 5. During that process I replaced the pam_unix auth modul with pam_krb5. But since that, when I execute the gksudo the gksudo process hangs (gksudo + 2 sudo childs). It shows no enter password dialog. All other auth apps are working (login, gdm, plain sudo etc). Is this a known problem or is there anything special to do?

Could you please send the result of running this?:

sudo -pBLAH some_comand_here

It seems like pam_krb5 overrides the sudo prompt, even if the user
requests a different one; gksu is not smart enough to handle that.

See ya,
