I compiled from source. No PAM. My system is Linux, Slackware 7.1.
I don't see any relevant debug info in the log files.
All I get is the dialog box "Authorization failed" in the browser.
I tried both locally (localhost:901) and over the net.
I can still use the swat binary from 2.2a2 without problems (that one
was also compiled from source).
The -a option works, of course, but I don't really want to use that.
