mate slackbuilds from slackware.uk works, but do not install cinnameon slackbuilds from slackware.uk


Yep, whatever you do - do not install csb(Cinnamon) from slackware.uk , it breaks --Current Slackware with PAM. Mate Slackbuild however works.

Hmmmm..... just updated -current with the PAM changes after reading:

notice any obvious operational differences.
Everything works as before so I have now returned to my normal computing pursuits....

Did you remove PAM, Cracklib from CSB and forgot to reinstall the packages from Slackware?
it works fine here on my vm

Probably, yes most likely. I just installed whatever packages were in CSB, so either way I guess I am still retarded .

let me try to start a fresh VM and build fresh packages from it and upload it.

but i'm pretty sure it's not related to CSB as Cinnamon isn't yet loaded up and you failed to login at prompt.

With regards to dovecot, I've gone through the config changes in the latest dovecot update... Am I right to presume that only the changes in "auth-system.conf.ext" are required to PAM-ify it? Specifically it seems driver = pam was added, and some passdb and shadow lines are commented out now.

I've upgraded and only replaced auth-system.config.ext and everything seems fine, but just want to make sure I'm not missing anything else that is important.

The default setting in the "auth-system.config.ext" file is OK but if you want to make more changes you can find it here:

Well ok to clarify, I just installed all the packages from csb, I didn't do anything different - did not remove cracklib or things like that sorry for that confusion. All I know is when I finished installing CSB it broke the system .

So I am curious were you able to replicate my issue by installing all CSB as is?

Weird, I do not know then..... Maybe MATE and CSB conflict. Try installing both , if still nothing happens then I have no idea what the issue could be.

Now that we have PAM, we can use solutions which work on other distros.

In case you're still here... does this work for you guys:

I haven't tried it, so I don't know if it's what you're looking for, but hopefully it's not too little too late.
It didn't work, but I sure thank you for the effort. I'm not sure, but I think that plasma-workspace needs to be rebuilt for support of this. But I'm afraid that support would also allow configuring an autologin for root. I understand why AlienBob would not support this, and that's not what I want. I'm just getting old and lazy. Typing a freaking password is not THAT big a deal........

Looking into how other distros (Arch, debian) dealt with autologin and sddm (KDE5), I could suggest the following modifications to make KDE5 autologin work on Current.
Be aware that I'm only just starting to understand PAM. So try at your own risk.

As root, do the following changes:

Change Autologin section in /etc/sddm.conf
Code:
[Autologin]
# Whether sddm should automatically log back into sessions when they exit
Relogin=false

# Name of session file for autologin session (if empty try last logged in)
Session=plasma.desktop

# Username for autologin session
User=<your username>
Create file /etc/pam.d/sddm-autologin with content:
Code:
#%PAM-1.0
auth        required    pam_env.so
auth        required    pam_tally2.so file=/var/log/tallylog onerr=succeed
auth        required    pam_shells.so
auth        required    pam_nologin.so
auth        required    pam_permit.so
-auth       optional    pam_gnome_keyring.so
-auth       optional    pam_kwallet5.so
account     include     system-auth
password    include     system-auth
session     include     system-auth
-session    optional    pam_gnome_keyring.so auto_start
-session    optional    pam_kwallet5.so auto_start
Reboot your system and hope for the best.

There's no reason to use both.

Hell, I still twitch a bit when I listen to https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9VcT...rBGeCvrLdJh94f (A link to the Sneaker Pimps song Tesko Suicide, in case you don't want to give traffic to YouTube.)

There is no Autologin section in /etc/sddm.conf
In /etc/sddm.conf.d there is a file called kde_settings.conf with an Autologin section. I changed that to reflect the above changes. I tried adding that section to sddm.conf but no go.

There is an /etc/pam.d/sddm-autologin with nearly the same entries as what you have. I have made these changes while making sure that I keep the originals. In every case, I end up at a blank screen with mouse and cursor visible for over 10 minutes before I do a hard reboot. I'm gonna keep trying - something is missing..... I hate not being able to figure this out. I ain't giving up yet.
