Re: Re: Problem writing module



I'm no sure if I understood. If you are saying that I should see the module logs (the ones I write on 
it, right?), that doesn't help since I tested having this code on the module: 
 
PAM_EXTERN int pam_sm_authenticate(pam_handle_t *ph, int flags, int argc, const char **argv) 
{ 
  printf("module: returning success!\n"); 
  return PAM_SUCCESS; 
} 
 
When using this module on login, it shows the message above and thats it for a few seconds, until 
the message "Login timed out after 60 seconds" appears and the "login:" prompt appears again! 
Any suggestions???

Look in the log files on your system and you might get some good  
debugging information if the module has a logging function coded into it  
already.  If you need an easy to use logging function for your module  
look in the source for the Linux-PAM package's other modules.
