Projects / pam_envfeed


pam_envfeed is a PAM module that runs an external program, grabs its output, and then defines the environment variables this program has emitted. It is especially useful for dynamically setting up a PATH that depends on many circumstances (such as whether the user is root, or whether a directory exists or not).
