Hi guys.

What can cause following error message on 3.99.6: 
login: username
login: pam_start failed

other than lack of /etc/pam.d and /usr/lib/security ?
I have both of them in place and still get that message.
I also have all the libs required for both the login binary and the files in /usr/lib/security/
