PAM plugin not working

hewghewg EntrantCurrent User Role Beginner
Hi, I downloaded percona-pam-plugin source code, compiled and installed it following instructions in n.html. When I tried to install the plugin, it failed:

mysql> INSTALL PLUGIN auth_pam SONAME '';
ERROR 1127 (HY000): Can't find symbol 'auth_pam' in library

Can someone shed some light on this issue and how to fix it? Thanks.

    Looks like mysql can't find file in shared library. Can you make sure that after installed percona-pam-plugin, the library/plugin directory has got the appropiate permissions? Because as per documentation, file execution permission is also required.

    I don't think that's the problem. See below:

    mysql> show variables like '%plugin%';
    | Variable_name | Value |
    | plugin_dir | /opt/aurora/mysql/lib/plugin/ |
    1 row in set (0.00 sec)

    /opt/aurora/mysql/lib/plugin # ls -l auth_pam.*
    -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 33212 Aug 23 20:40 auth_pam.a
    -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 810 Aug 23 20:40
    -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 28067 Aug 23 20:40

    If I look up the symbol table in, I don't see the "auth_pam" symbol:
    /opt/aurora/mysql/lib/plugin # nm | grep auth
    0000000000001580 t authenticate_user_with_pam_client
    0000000000001690 T authenticate_user_with_pam_client_common
    0000000000001140 t authenticate_user_with_pam_server
    00000000002022a0 d pam_auth_handler
    U pam_authenticate[EMAIL="@@LIBPAM_1.0"]@@LIBPAM_1.0[/EMAIL]
    00000000002022c0 d test_pam_auth_handler

    Not sure if that's the problem. Thanks.
