comment Writing basic systemd service files
Thanks! With your help and the blog I found, I was able to get a basic one working. Systemd seems a lot nicer than upstart or the old systemv init daemon.

comment Writing basic systemd service files
The man pages will be useful (I wish it was cleaner though), but is there a basic system file tutorial? Like which parts are necessary, which parts are recommended, and which parts are optional. The man pages seem to assume that I'm already an expert in systemd system files, which I am not.

comment Custom PAM modules and security considerations
Ok, thanks!! Now I understand it all. I thought that perhaps my distribution had a custom fall-back procedure build in to their version of PAM or something. Thanks for clearing this up.

comment Custom PAM modules and security considerations
This really cleared stuff up for me. Do some distributions use the common-* files as a backup for the service-specific config files? When I put my module in common-auth, it was run even when running sudo.

comment Custom PAM modules and security considerations
Well, my application is a daemon that syncs a user's account with the network if the logged-in user is a network user. I think as long as I don't allow communication between the daemon and the PAM module I should be ok.
