pam radius auth in slackware ??


Hi all

I'm setting up a client for an internet point

I already have a captive portal working (chillispot) , but now I'm searching a way to totally lock clients.

So I'm trying to install pam radius auth ( http://www.freeradius.org/pam_radius_auth/ ), which simply authenticates users on a radius server

But this is module for pam and slackware doesn't include pam.

So the question is: how to include PAM in slackware ??

Or: how to use radius auth without pam ??

tnx in advance for any reply

(I hope there's a solution .. I don't want to use another distro instead of slack ..)

Including PAM in slackware involves recompiling nearly everything. And I mean everything. Pat V. doesn't include it as he feels it's a security risk.

As for installing Radius w/o PAM, I'm not sure
