I'm embarrassed. When I right click and go to properties, it is said the file is 2.9MB. But the archive is 30MB (?) ; and I can only send up to 10MB with my email account .

Hi,

That can happen to all of us. Send just the files in the directory where you ran the installation from, excluding the subdirectories.

Kind regards,

Eric

I just noticed a weird thing. In $HOME/Downloads/Linux-PAM-0.77, there's a folder (called security) that points to $HOME/Downloads/Linux-PAM-0.77... The archive manager should either ignore it or go to an infinite loop, but why stop at 30MB?

What archive manager are you using?

Kind regards,

I'm just using right click and compress. There are different extensions available, including .tar.gz by default.

I think there's a command called "tar -xzvf files" or something like that, that might help to compress all files but one?

Select the files you want to compress either using CTRL and left click to select, or using SHIFT and select the first and then the last. Then with the files selected right click and compress. That should work.

Kind regards,

Eric

It worked, but the archive was an hidden file. I had to go to "view" and "show hidden files" to find it. I'm sending it to you now. Do you know why it became an hidden file ? (the name doesn't start with a '.')

Hi,

As reference for future problems with this package. I've been emailing with the OP in order to find a solution. In one of the scripts in the package I found reference to remove as a make option (instead of uninstall), which is logical (why didn't I think of that earlier??? ). Running
Code:
make remove
gave following results:
Code:
make remove
rm -f /usr/include/security/_pam_aconf.h
rm: cannot remove `/usr/include/security/_pam_aconf.h': Permission denied
make: *** [remove] Error 1
Then I realized elishac is using Ubuntu. He should be running now with sudo.

@elishac: revers to posting here on LQ again please, so that others with similar problem can profit from it.

Kind regards,

Eric

If you don't mind, I'd like us to have a debriefing about some of the things that you made me do and that I didn't understand, and the questions that were left unanswered.

I can see 3 questions that were not answered (but maybe I should start another topic?)
- why did the file become hidden when I compressed it, and why didn't it go into an infinite loop ?
- My file in /var/log/syslog is still getting spammed with "init: ureadahead-other main process (15488) terminated with status 2". How to make this stop ?
- How to get unix-chkpwd lines in /var/log/syslog (I know it's possible because I've seen a log with lines like this) ?

Thanks.
