Re: dlopen failure



What do you mean by dlopen errors?
I added line 
printf("dlopen : %s\n", dlerror());
right after calling pam_authenticate(pamh, 0);
output is 'dlopen : (null)'
Do you want to see output of strace, everything looks fine there.

BTW, originally I used strdup() but removed it lately, may be
thoughtlessly, anyway this program never gave me segfault, while
I guess you are right that strdup() should be used, thus I put 
strdup back in a form '(char *)strdup("dummmy")', of course I get
the same result, as I described below.
