PAM (Pluggable Authentication Modules) is a service that implements modular authentication modules. PAM is implemented as a set of shared objects that are loaded and executed when a program needs to authenticate a user.
Files for PAM are typically located in the
/etc/pam.d directory. But the
pam.d directory is non-existent within my Slackware system. Do I have to install it? If yes, what is the name of the package?
