RedHat 9 (Linux i386) - man page for pam_console_apply (redhat section 8)

pam_console_appy(8)		  System Administrator's Manual 	      pam_console_appy(8)

NAME
       pam_console_apply - set or revoke permissions for users at the system console

SYNOPSIS
       pam_console_apply [-r]

DESCRIPTION
       pam_console_apply sets or resets permissions on devices in the same manner as pam_console.
       If  /var/run/console.lock  exists,  pam_console_apply  will  grant permissions to the user
       listed therein.	If the lock file does not exist, permissions are reset to those listed in
       /etc/security/console.perms,  which  should be configured to set permissions on devices so
       that root owns them.

ARGUMENTS
       -r     Signals pam_console_apply to reset permissions.  The default is to set  permissions
	      so  that the user listed in /var/run/console.lock has access to the devices, and to
	      reset permissions if no such file exists.

FILES
       /var/run/console.lock
       /etc/security/console.perms
