Hi Daimen Miller,
I accept your disguize, but I really thought this mailing list which
could help me to solve the problem.
The changes in SSHD code is only in one file i.e session.c and that
too it is a very simple change. The changes is just setting an
envoirnment variable which is just an integer.
I am using child_set_env function to achieve it.
The main problem is the behaviour changes on machine to machine. On
some machine i get error
PAM faulty module pam_test.so
PAM unable to dlopen pam_test.so
PAM unable to dlopen pam_deny.so
On some machine every thing goes fine end to end and surprisingly all
the machines are standard RH 9 machines.
Am I missing out some configuration.
I havent changed standard sshd_config file.
I have tweaked nsswitch.conf and /etc/pam.d/sshd file.
