Is PAM a strict requirement? Yes. PAM is used for user authentication and authorisation, and is integral to the operation of schroot. Given that schroot runs setuid root to do what it does, I would be reluctant to write an alternative to replace the PAM functionality, due to the potential for severe security problems if I make any mistakes. Linux-PAM did previously contain Linux kernel datatypes (for reasons which escape me), but TTBOMK these were removed over a year ago. Will it now build for you? (Some of the modules might not build or be useful for you, but the configure script should be able to disable those--though this might need adding). Regards, Roger -- .''`.
