Util-Linux issue: login selected!


Here it is the output. Everything went fine, all dummy.c worked perfectly, and no problems until this.

configure: error: login selected, but required PAM header file not available
Thanks for answers.

There's not enough info to work with:

- Which LFS version are you trying to build,
- Are we talking about chapter 6.22 Util-linux-2.21.2,
- Did you have any problems in the previous chapters,
- Post the error and a few lines before it (re-read this chapter: 1.5 - Help

I'm really sorry, you're right. I am using LFS 7.2, chapter 6.22.1 Util-Linux 2.21.2, and no errors were found in the previous steps. Dummy.c and all the connected tests in the book went fine. The code last output lines are:

I do see something strange:

PAM isn't part of building LFS (it is part of BLFS) and building Util-Linux should not look for this file at this stage.

The info you posted does not help in finding the reason for this behaviour. Can you post the following information:
- The created config.log file

First thing I noticed: Why are you building Util-linux 2.22 and not Util-linux-2.21.2 as mentioned in the LFS 7.2 book?

This also raises another question: Which other packages did you build that are not the version used in the LFS book?

My advise: Remove the newer version, get the appropriate Util-linux version and try again.

You're right. To be honest, I haven't notice the difference: I downloaded the packages from LFS repository and i thought they're perfect..not only this, use md5sum to check packages made no errors. I hope using the previous Util would be enough.. I'll tell you..

EDIT: take a look on that:
http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/lfs/...til-linux.html

here it is different from the book. And they're using 2.22 typing --disable-su,--disable-sulogin, --disable-login when they have to run ./configure .

EDIT2: It's a funny joke.

That URL points to the SVN version, which will be the follow-up to LFS 7.2 stable.

Do not mix and match these 2 versions.

Ok with the 2.21.2 version everything seems to be OK.
