Using PAM with SFS
I'm using the libpam-sfs PAM module, which lets users authenticate at
login and for importing directories in one single step. The binary
.deb that comes with Woody works fine. But...
Short version: when I try to compile it from source I hit a wall.
Anybody managed to compile it?
$ apt-get source libpam-sfs
E: Unable to find a source package for libpam-sfs
So I got it from SourceForge (libpam-sfs-0.2.2.tar.gz), unpacked it
and run dpkg-buildpackage. It dies with:
make: ./configure: Command not found
Ooops, there is no configure. But there is autogen.sh. I run
autogen.sh and then dpkg-buildpackage again:
checking for main in -lgmp3... no
configure: error: gmp3 library not found
$ dpkg --status libgmp3
Status: install ok installed
# ln -s /usr/lib/libgmp.so.3 /usr/lib/libgmp3.so
Ok, past libgmp3, but now it ends with...
checking for main in -lsfscrypt... no
configure: error: sfscrypt library not found
But debian/rules does call configure --with-sfs-libdir=/usr/lib/sfs,
$ ls /usr/lib/sfs/libsfscrypt.*
What am I doing wrong? BTW, I've tried to compile libpam-sfs on RH
7.2 and 7.3 too with no success, either (though the problem there
seems related to nana-config.h). I'm setting a file server in an
environment where clients' roots aren't necessarily trusted and
phisical access to the network is not restricted, so NFS isn't the
healthiest choice and I have found no alternative beyond SFS that is
reasonably gentle to sysadmins. (No, after LDAP plus Samba there's no
way I'm grokking Kerberos for AFS. ;->)
Thank you for any help,
