Subject: [gentoo-user] dis-functional error from emerge -vuDN
Date: Wed, 02 Jan 2008 17:33:02
1 An error message I get while `emerge -vuDN world' (following a sync)
2 concerning sys-libs/pam doesn't give me enough information to cure
3 what ails it.
5 Even scanning through the update page:
8 the error refers me to I end up not really seeing what needs to be
9 done. (full error at the end. I've included massive outout of
10 emerge --info for reference)
12 The error claims I am running:
13 pam_pwdb, pam_radius, pam_timestamp, pam_console
14 but provides no clue as to how to remedy that condition.
16 Further, I'm striking out even determining that I am in fact doing
17 what that line claims.
19 Checking the output of equery files sys-libs/pam I see none that match
20 up to those module names. A grep -r using the part of those names
21 after the underscore like:
22 grep -r 'pwdb' /etc/security/
24 Produces no hits. In fact there is not a single line in
25 /etc/security/pam_env.conf that is not commented
27 I thought maybe it was a USE flag problem so looked at how the
28 existing pam was installed:
30 USE="cracklib%* nls -audit% (-selinux) -test% -vim-syntax"
32 Unless cracklib is the culprit I don't see much there to inspire me.
34 I'm out of ideas as to where to look and the error doesn't give enough
35 information to guide me further. There may be something in that
36 update page to help but its skipping right over my head.
38 It never really says where the code it presents is to be found but I'm
39 guessing it would be the files under /etc/security
40 all those files are commented out except namespace.init that has this
41 line uncommented:
42 exit 0
43 Maybe something needs to be uncommented in one of them.
