Question Problem with PAM


I have a problem with Linux-Pam on my LFS. I should for my linux LFS install Stunnel-4.15. This is the commande :

groupadd -g 51 stunnel &&
useradd -c "Stunnel Daemon" -d /var/lib/stunnel \
        -g stunnel -s /bin/false -u 51 stunnel &&
install -v -m 1770 -o stunnel -g stunnel -d /var/lib/stunnel/run
But "groupadd" dont OK. I have this response : PAM autentification failure. What is the problem?

Thanks for you reponse.

PS : Sorry for my english because i'm french

This might sound silly, but did you run the command as root?

And are you sure you configured PAM and Shadow correctly?

Hi, yes i run this command in root. I think the PAM and Shadow is ok. Would you like the configuration file of PAM and Shadow ?

I have a folder /etc/pam.d/ and /etc/pam.conf -> It's PAM

/etc/pam.d/login /etc/pam.d/passwd /etc/pam.d/passwd /etc/pam.d/su /etc/pam.d/chage /etc/pam.d/other -> Shadow

Every file is(with CrackLib)

The file are the same like in the Blfs doc. It's ok ?
