Overview
========
LoginKit is an attempt to implement a compatible, yet standalone alternative to
logind and libsystemd (http://www.freedesktop.org/wiki/Software/systemd), which
does not depend on a specific init system.
It acts as a glue layer that exposes logind's interface, but uses ConsoleKit2
(https://github.com/ConsoleKit2/ConsoleKit2) as a backend.
It's under heavy development and not ready for general use.
Dependencies
============
LoginKit requires GLib, PAM and ConsoleKit2.
Building
========
On Debian, install libpam0g-dev and libglib2.0-dev:
apt-get install -y libpam0g-dev libglib2.0-dev
To build LoginKit:
make
Usage
=====
- Replace systemd's libsystemd*.so.0 with LoginKit's ones
- Kill systemd-logind
- Run loginkitd (quickly, before logind is restarted)
- Add pam_loginkit.so to PAM's modules directory
- Replace "pam_systemd" with "pam_loginkit", in PAM's configuration
