VMWare Server 1.0.8 on 32-bit Gentoo, with the Console running on 64-bit Vista. Cannot login, as the username & password are always incorrect, despite being typed in correctly every time.

Code:
Nov 25 13:10:27 southpark xinetd[437]: START: vmware-authd pid=11188 from=192.168.1.196
Nov 25 13:10:28 southpark vmware-authd[11188]: PAM unable to dlopen(/lib/security/pam_unix2.so): /lib/security/pam_unix2.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Nov 25 13:10:28 southpark vmware-authd[11188]: PAM unable to dlopen(/lib/security/pam_unix_acct.so): /lib/security/pam_unix_acct.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Nov 25 13:10:28 southpark vmware-authd[11188]: PAM adding faulty module: /lib/security/pam_unix_acct.so
Nov 25 13:10:28 southpark xinetd[437]: EXIT: vmware-authd status=1 pid=11188 duration=1(sec)


I tried looking through portage to see if I need to emerge anything, but I couldn't find anything related to these files, and everything I did try, I already had installed.....

Any ideas what I need to emerge, or do to get this to work?

/lib/security/pam_unix2.so


to
Code:
/lib/security/pam_unix.so

Tried that apparently in the wrong file (/etc/vmware/pam.d/vmware-authd), and it still wanted pam_unix2.so (obviously, as I now found out as I re-read the post that I fixed the wrong file...)

So, at the time, I just symlinked pam_unix2 to pam_unix.so, problem solved anyway...
