Hi Mike,

To build pam_slurm_adopt, you need the pam-devel package installed on the node you're building Slurm on.

On RHEL, it's pam-devel, and Debian it's libpam-dev

Once you have installed that, do ./configure again, and then you should be able to make the pam_slurm_adopt

External email: Please exercise caution

I am trying to build the pam_slurm_adopt module for pam, by following the directions found on


which says to get into contribs/pam_slurm_adopt/ and do

make && make install

However, cd-ing into that directory and running make just gives

# make
make: Nothing to be done for `all'.
# make install
make[1]: Entering directory `/root/Downloads/slurm-20.11.7/contribs/pam_slurm_adopt'
make[1]: Nothing to be done for `install-data-am'.
make[1]: Leaving directory `/root/Downloads/slurm-20.11.7/contribs/pam_slurm_adopt'

My configure was

./configure --prefix=/opt/ohpc/pub/slurm/slurm-20.11.7 --with-pmix=/opt/ohpc/pub/slurm/pmix-4.0.0 --sysconfdir=/etc/slurm

but even if I add "--with-pam", I get the same result with make.

Can someone point me to what I'm missing?
