Re: building static library libpam



Thanks  Thorsten.

I was doing crosscompilation for ppc architecture.
I use the following options for crosscompiling with configure,

 CC=/opt/ELDK41/usr/bin/ppc_6xx-gcc  --disable-selinux
--host=ppc-linux-gnu -target=ppc-linux-gnu --build=i686-linux-gnu
--includedir=/opt/ELDK41/ppc_6xx/usr/include/security/

I find the following problems with this:

-- It directly didnt build .so , I manually created .so with all the
.o's formed. With this
the libpam looks like linked statically to pam_unix.so module,
although i didnt mention static flag anywhere.

when i do  /opt/ELDK41/usr/bin/ppc_6xx-nm on pam_unix.so, it gives
pam_get_item defined, but
pam_modutil_getlogin and similar modutil functions undefined.

/opt/ELDK41/usr/bin/ppc_6xx-nm .libs/pam_unix.so |grep modutil
         U pam_modutil_getlogin

Can anyone please let me know if i am  missing somehting here.

Thanks and Best Regards,
Pavan
