RE: Pam-list Digest, Vol 42, Issue 3

Thank you very much!
1. Yes, I have already defined the "service" "check_user"
2. Yes, I used the "misc_conv" which defined in the pam_misc.h
I changed my "check_user" service file is:
auth       required     pam_stack.so service=system-auth
auth       required     pam_nologin.so
account    required     pam_stack.so service=system-auth
I get some new results , but i don't unterstand what's going on?
1. I login the system as root , and complied my code , then run it , everything is ok
2. I login the system as no-root , run the program complied by root , get this code "PAM_AUTHINFO_UNAVAIL"
3. I login the system as no-root , complied my code ,then run the program , get this code "PAM_AUTHINFO_UNAVAIL"
4. I login the system as no-root ,then run "sudo chmod u+s check_user" on the program i just complied,  run it ,
 I get the code "PAM_AUTHINFO_UNAVAIL"
Please explain for me.
Thank you very much!

I'm studying on pam library , and I run the code given by "The Linux-PAM Application Developer's Guide" on redhat linux.
"retval = pam_authenticate(pamh, 0);" is running successfully
but the next "retval = pam_acct_mgmt(pamh, 0);" return "PAM_AUTHINFO_UNAVAIL"
I don't know what problem is it? Please do me a favour.
Thank you very much

there are several things in your program to be checked:
  1. have you already defined the 'service' 'check_user' in your pam.d directory?
    If not, the behaviour will fall back to service 'other', which may be missing too.
  2. Does your conversation function 'conv' as defined in pam_start() work well, i.e.
    does it query for a password? If not, you must supply a password via pam_set_item()
    to make pam_authenticate work.

I suggest, you go and start a debugger (gdb) to look for what your example program
is doing in detail.
