How can I install the pam_authentication plugin in deb based system?

Hi all,

I 've been reading the pam_auth plugin howto:

MariaDB [test]> INSTALL PLUGIN pam SONAME '';
ERROR 1126 (HY000): Can't open shared library '/usr/lib/mysql/plugin/' (errno: 2 cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory)

Indeed that file does not exist on the system. Nor does the file.

I installed mariadb-server-5.2 using the deb repos on Ubuntu 10.04 64bit (Lucid). Is there any deb archive to include those files in binary? Or do I have to resort to source compilation?

Answer Answered by Kristian Nielsen in this comment.

The .debs for 5.2.10 and 5.3.3 do not yet include the pam plugin. The plugin is only available in the source tarball.

But it should be included in .debs for the next versions (5.2.11 and 5.3.4), which I expect will be released within the next month or so.
