conection via xdmcp failed

I ve tried to connect to server via XDMCP, (I am using debian lenny with gnome). Following the doc I ve just to enable in gdm.conf , [XDMCP] section, Enable=true. On some machines it ran, on other it didn't ???

When I ran on distant client xdmcp chooser, the server didn't appear, I enter manually the address, I tried to log, but it failed (the screen became blank and frozen). I suppose it tried to connect in vain.

Finaly I discover, may be, this is the error, in /var/log/auth.log the following

Apr 1 18:06:48 localhost gdm[3904]: PAM unable to dlopen(/lib/security/ /lib/security/ cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

It seems strange for me, I install in the same way the system ?? I didn't install manually anything about PAM, on any machine!!!

how to correct it? how to install the missed lib,
thanks for help
