Installed package does not work

gss-ntlmssp (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

The gss-ntlmssp package installs a file in /etc/gss/mech.d which is supposed to make it get loaded.

It doesn't work for two reason. Firstly, it gets completely ignored because its filename doesn't end in ".conf".

Secondly, it contains an incorrect entry for the shared library path. So we end up doing this:
 stat("/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/gss/${prefix}/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/gssntlmssp/", 0x7ffca5870a90) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)

Even when I fix that so the module gets loaded, it still doesn't seem to work.

What should happen here, of course, is that the request is resubmitted with the NTLMSSP response:

But gss-ntlmssp bailed out with that 'Not a user credential type' error.

I'm testing with a simple $NTLM_USER_FILE set; not via winbind.

The config fail and path have been fixed in 0.7.0-3 which is in zesty, don't know about the rest though.. might've been fixed by the new release.
