9 While I was waiting I went back to the page and
10 decided I should probably emerge pam_chroot.
11 pam_userdb didn't seem to involve me so I left it
12 alone. Other than that I couldn't see what else
13 applied to my case except for the suggestion that
14 some, unamed, file should be edited. I notice that
15 since I apparently overleapt the main pam hurdle
16 /etc/pam.d has a new system-auth file in it. Must be
17 on the right track cause it didn't complain about
18 pam-0.99 when pam_chroot was emerged. Then I made
19 detour and updated a bunch of /etc files that had
20 popped up after having started the massive update. I
21 must have missed modprobe cause when I booted again a
22 boot warning flashed by, "warning modprobe.conf not
23 generated". Then it got to login where I was again not
24 allowed access. Does that have something to do with
25 modprobe.conf? PAM? Both?

42 As for modprobe, I just chrooted again and ran
43 update-modules. I forgot to add -v on the first pass,
44 so I did it again with -v and it's telling me
46 *Skipping /etc/modules.conf generation(prerequisites
47 not satisfied
48 *Skipping /etc/modprobe.conf generation (file is newer
49 than dependencies)
50 * The dir '/lib/modules/2.6.15-gentoo-r5/modules.dep'
51 does not exist, skipping call to depmod
53 So this is wierd: according to ls -l
54 /etc/modprobe.conf was just written.
56 Or is it because the PC is in a chrooted environment
57 and uses a different set of modules?
