I know of the specification.  However, I have a customized version of the
pam-mysql module that I have tried to install.  In a previous post to this
list about a week or two ago, I wrote about getting only the following
entrys in the log file (an example of one from today) :

Oct  5 13:04:15 sharktooth login: in opempam_load_module(): no
pam_mysql.so found
Oct  5 13:04:15 sharktooth login: pam_start(): failed to load module

Now, it is there in the /usr/lib/ directory, it has the correct
permissions, correct owner, etc.  In the /etc/pam.d/login file, I've even
put in absolute paths, and non-aboslute paths.  I've copied existing
module entries, changing only the module name (such as pam_unix to

Can you at least point me to some documentation?  I don't mind porting the
module.  I've copied the pam_unix.c module that comes with the openpam
source code (dogwood release, the one in 5.x), changed references from
pam_unix to pam_mysql, leaving the actual implementations in place so I
make sure that I'm not messing something up, and STILL get the same log
file entries, so it can't be the code in the module.  What's the deal?

If you want the source, give me a day or two to remove proprietary code,
and I can get that back to you - however, it will look extremely similar
to the existing pam_mysql module, because that was the basis for my work.
