Requirements for Using PAM
The following are required to use PAM in Ingres:
You must have root access to edit configuration files.
Your machine must have PAM installed.
You can download PAM from the vendor site for your operating system. For example, for Solaris see http://sun.com/software/solaris/pam.
You may need to build and install PAM if no binaries are available for your operating system. If your machine does not have a robust C compiler, you may need to download and build gcc from http://gcc.gnu.org/releases.html. As a prerequisite to gcc, you may also need to download gmake from http://gnu.org/software/make.
