Re: Setting groupIDs within pam_authenticate()



I think you need to make the effective uid of the program to be root.
It worked for me

Subject: Setting groupIDs within pam_authenticate()


> Hello.

> I am trying to set the user and group ID's for the user and process currently calling pam_authenticate(). However, when I try to call setgid() or setuid(), the systems tells me that these calls are not allowed at this time. If I use setgroups() then, the function call works but, after the application exits, the user ID is not set properly.
