Re: Re: Re: Problem writing module

By the way: just to remember, the tester doesn't exit! Still run, like on  an endless loop.
I suspect that this is why the login time outs. It might stop waiting for the PAM module to authenticate and then, try again showing the login prompt once more.

Wich app? PAM? Login? My module? My test app? :)
Thanks a lot for that test harness!!! I debugged with it and this is what I found out:

1: the tester request for a "login" service (and my module is loaded for that)
2: the tester calls pam_authenticate.
3: my module returns PAM_SUCCESS
4: the tester calls pam_acct_mgmt(pamh, 0) 
5: pam_permit.so handles that and returns PAM_SUCCESS
5: the tester calls pam_open_session(pamh, 0);
6: pam_unix responds to the call, and, on the line 98 of pam_unix_sess.c, it calls the this function on support.c:
_log_err(LOG_INFO, pamh, "session opened for user %s by %s(uid=%d)",
	 user_name, login_name, getuid());

/* values: user_name = "tbezerra", login_name = "", getuid() = 1022 (tbezerra's id) */
And there, at line 53 [syslog(err, format, args);], the tester halts!! No error, no nothing. Simply stops!
More ideas?? I'm really lost!!

It sounds like it might be the app.  At any rate, I personally use this 
test harness to get everything ironed out, _THEN_ I start testing with 
actual apps.  It makes it really easy to see what's going on.


This is a very hand gem!  (Thanks to Darren Tucker!)
