Thanks, I know, but that's not the problem.
pamsmbd doesn't read the password file directly; instead it asks smbd.
I discovered it uses LanMan passwords, which are now disabled by
default, so I added "lanman auth=yes" to smb.conf: this was some step
ahead, but still not enough.
I also tried pam_smbpass.so, which comes with Samba and reads the
smbpasswd file directly: I expect it would know where it is, since it
comes from the same port. No success here either.
This worries me a lot, since the working samba version was removed from
the port tree...
bye & Thanks
