The file exists because it's part of the pam package and is still included upstream. Also, I haven't tested this as I adjusted my systemd config but I'm hearing from others that at some point systemd started reading this file, so if your settings in /etc/systemd are commented out it may still work. Would probably be good for someone to confirm this before they delete this page. [[User:Vash63|Vash63]] ([[User talk:Vash63|talk]]) 15:38, 13 January 2019 (UTC)
