Is Ivandi's PAM package gone?


I've been periodically updating my Slackware Active Directory domain members from http://www.bisdesign.ca/ivandi/slackware/PAM-packages/. I went to do that today and that directory is gone. Does anyone know if this means Ivandi has discontinued maintaining his PAM package? Has the repo been moved?

I do have the packages as of 1st quarter 2019. Although the repository was there as of the end of 2nd Quarter, there were no updates then (at least in the packages I was using). Since it's been moved to the archive directory, would it be correct to assume this package is no longer being updated? Or possibly not further updates are need for 14.2? Or perhaps he is awaiting 15.0? Or perhaps 15.0 will have PAM? (I realize you probably don't have the answers to these questions -- just hoping a good PAM for Slackware is not gone without less talented users like me having to sift through and test sources. PAM is crucial for integrating Slackware workstations into Windows Active Directory domains).

I think Ivandi told us here on LQ that he was done with Slackware. I would not keep waiting for him to update his packages - their removal should speak for itself.

The binary packages are no longer there, but I think the slackbuilds and other required files are still online at

That's what I suspected. Too bad.

Yes, but if they're not being updated then my binaries are as up-to-date as they're going to get. I think I'll check out your link and snag these, just in case. I've heard rumors that 15.0 will have PAM, so I think I can use what I've got until then.
