Started circa the release of Slackware-13.1,
was the hackings on Linux-PAM integreation to Slackware Linux.
To date it has just keep up with the -current development branch.
This is the addition of two packages (pam, cracklib), and the rebuild of a series of packages,
to overhaul the authentication in Slackware Linux, using Linux-PAM
During Slackware-13.37 RC 3.14
PV has included the SlackBuild for Linux-PAM as /extra/sources/pam/
to generate a single *.so for the google-chrome build
There are NOTES.txt and README in the root directory, along with a couple of scripts
crafted up for my use. The directories a/, ap/, kde/, l/, n/ and xap/ are the source for the SlackBuilds.
The pkgs/ has Slackware packages for the -current development branch (i486 and x86_64).
To download, use lftp or rsync. You can download everything, or only the packages, if you are interested in helping debug these builds.
A scripty example of downloading and installing only for, could be:
if [ -z "$ARCH" ]; then
case "$( uname -m )" in
i?86) ARCH=i486 ;;
*) ARCH=$( uname -m ) ;;
mkdir -p ~/pam
lftp -c "open http://hashbangbash.com/downloads/pam/pkgs/; mirror $ARCH"
upgradepkg --install-new *.t?z
If are willing to subject your machine to testing, then feel free to send back feedback :)
