Description Michael H. Schimek 2006-02-21 18:02:15 EST
The usermode-1.85 source does not compile on my box because configure cannot
find libpam and libpam_misc:

checking for pam_start... no
checking for pam_start in -lpam... no
/usr/src/usermode-1.85/configure: line 7597: dl: command not found
checking for misc_conv... no
checking for misc_conv in -lpam_misc... no


configure:7530: checking for pam_start in -lpam
configure:7560: gcc -o conftest -g -O2   conftest.c -lpam   >&5
/usr/lib/gcc/i686-pc-linux-gnu/4.0.2/../../../libpam.so: undefined reference to
/usr/lib/gcc/i686-pc-linux-gnu/4.0.2/../../../libpam.so: undefined reference to
/usr/lib/gcc/i686-pc-linux-gnu/4.0.2/../../../libpam.so: undefined reference to
/usr/lib/gcc/i686-pc-linux-gnu/4.0.2/../../../libpam.so: undefined reference to
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

Apparently in configure.in AC_CHECK_LIB the action-if-not-found is missing:

AC_CHECK_FUNC(pam_start,,[AC_CHECK_LIB(pam,pam_start,PAM_LIBS="-lpam -ldl",dl)])
Comment 1 Jindrich Novy 2006-02-22 03:43:55 EST
It seems you haven't installed glibc-devel on your system. Usermode has an
explicit dependency to pam-devel. So that rpmbuild won't let you go on building
the package when libpam.so is missing.
Comment 2 Michael H. Schimek 2006-02-22 22:09:05 EST
I don't have a RedHat system. I tried to build usermode-1.85.tar.bz2 from the
usermode-1.85-2.2.src.rpm by hand. The AC_CHECK_FUNC tests for pam_start and
misc_conv succeed only if I configure with LIBS="-lpam -ldl -lpam_misc". The
AC_CHECK_LIB tests which try -lpam and -lpam_misc explicitely are broken,
passing dl and $PAM_LIBS as action-if-not-found instead of other-libraries, and
dl should be -ldl.
Comment 3 Jindrich Novy 2006-02-23 04:45:24 EST
Confirmed. I fixed it upstream, thanks. The fixed configure.in will be present
since usermode-1.86-1 release. I'll close this bug after it's released. Thanks.
