I don't even see it in experimental yet. If you got sources from somewhere else, try (totally untested - maybe write to maintainer first?) changing the version dependency on PAM to the sid version. IIRC, I got the sources and compiled to .deb locally some months ago, and had no problem running against the PAM from unstable, but I didn't have to do any hacking on debian/control, either - the dependencies were fine as is. Sadly, I uninstalled and dumped the .deb, otherwise I could just send it to you. Good luck, Steve -- Grinnell's Law of Labor Laxity: At all times, for any task, you have not got enough done today.
