Trouble with crypt(3) in pam module.

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]



I simply do not get it... crypt(3) crashes in a PAM module,
raising a segfault, but it does not in a 'standalone version'
of the module.

The code below (which is the minimal I have been able to squeeze 
it into) segfaults if run as a pam module. It does not do so 
if run standalone (adding the main() and compiling it as an executable).

Any ideas, pointers, misunderstandings on my side?

I can run other libraries (namely OpenSSL) without problems, although
BIO_free_all() also segfaulted...

This happens in two systems at least:

Ubuntu-9, 2.6.24-24-generic #1 SMP, x86_64
Fedora-13, #1 SMP

It seems to be related to the 64bit thing, but I am not that
sure. I am copying the error messages:

On the Ubuntu system:

On the Fedora system:
