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 pam_mysql). > > Hmmm... odd; the modules all build and work just fine, modulo some > minor tweaks mostly related to gcc 3.x, even though I have never built > them on FreeBSD 5 before.

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.
