Could someone please give me the executive summary about the issue of shadow and pam-login? I recently tried installing Modular-X because the monolithic-X I had on the machine was blocking everything but ultraviolet rays (maybe that too - it is wintertime).

After removing all the blockers, x-windows worked pretty well, but I could not log in after reboot!! I kept a log of everything I did to clean up, and one item was removing pam-login (which was blocking shadow). When I tried to emerge pam-login back in, maybe it's my mirror or what, it says there is no such thing as pam-login? :? Then I emerged shadow and now I'm allowed to log in again! You guys could tell me RTFM, I'm cool with that, but I'm still busy repairing the rest of the damage.

Consult topic: "pam-login blocks shadow".
