Which has nothing to do with RADIUS or FreeRADIUS.
I do not agree with this statement as Radius needs to have some other
mechanism to store the user name and password for authentication. MySQL is
just one of them.
You cannot break the dependence linkage, isolate the problem then says it
has nothing to do with Radius. If you stated that Radius does not have
ability to manage the other user profile information like LDAP did much
earlier rather than accusing PAM, It would have save me a lot of time
fixing this problem. Radius lacking this ability to so is definitely
something to do with Radius.
The user who posted the issues on this forum are not expected to be
familiar with Radius as you (nor on PAM or other modules).
What DOES help is me telling you that you needed to configure NSS. Which
is what I did.
PS: you never advised me to configure NSS, in fact, you did not even
mention NSS before, you just kept pushing me to ask this question on PAM
mailing list. By the way, I did ask this question on PAM list and no one
knows what was going on.
