Re: pam_get_item() problems



I have the following:
/*
 * dummy conversation function sending exactly one prompt
 * and expecting exactly one response from the other party
 */
static int converse(pam_handle_t *pamh,
                    struct pam_message **message,
                    struct pam_response **response)
{
    int retval;
    const struct pam_conv *conv;

    retval = pam_get_item(pamh, PAM_CONV, (const void **) &conv ) ;
    if (retval == PAM_SUCCESS)
        retval = conv->conv(1, (const struct pam_message **)message,
                            response, conv->appdata_ptr);

    return retval; /* propagate error status */
}

/*
 * This is a conversation function to obtain the user's password
 */
int conversation(pam_handle_t *pamh)
{
    struct pam_message msg[2],*pmsg[2];
    struct pam_response *resp;
    int retval;
    char * token = NULL;

    pmsg[0] = &msg[0];
    msg[0].msg_style = PAM_PROMPT_ECHO_OFF;
    msg[0].msg = "Password: ";

    /* so call the conversation expecting i responses */
    resp = NULL;
    retval = converse(pamh, pmsg, &resp);

    if (resp != NULL) {
        const char * item;
        /* interpret the response */
        if (retval == PAM_SUCCESS) {     /* a good conversation */
            token = x_strdup(resp[0].resp);
            if (token == NULL) {
                return PAM_AUTHTOK_RECOVER_ERR;
            }
        }

        /* set the auth token */
        retval = pam_set_item(pamh, PAM_AUTHTOK, token);
        token = _pam_delete(token);   /* clean it up */
        if ( (retval != PAM_SUCCESS) ||
             (retval = pam_get_item(pamh, PAM_AUTHTOK, (const void **)&item))
             != PAM_SUCCESS ) {
            return retval;
        }

        _pam_drop_reply(resp, 1);
    } else {
        retval = (retval == PAM_SUCCESS)
            ? PAM_AUTHTOK_RECOVER_ERR:retval ;
    }

    return retval;
}
