The pkgbuild needs to be updated to fix the deprecated-declaration errors, by modifying this line sed -i'' 's|LIBDIR ?= /lib/security|LIBDIR ?= /usr/lib/security|g' src/Makefile into sed -i 's|Werror|Werror -Wno-error=deprecated-declarations|;s|LIBDIR ?= /lib/security|LIBDIR ?= /usr/lib/security|g' src/Makefile.

To use Howdy, python-configparser needs to be installed (AUR package), and the following symlinks also need to be created: sudo ln -s /usr/lib/security/pam_python{3,}.so and sudo ln -s /usr/lib/python3.12/{configparser,ConfigParser}.py.

sudo howdy test works, however pam does not seem to start authentication.

Not working on my device neither.

I think a simple fix could be to just run make lib to avoid building the docs, as the crash happened during the doc building process.

By doing so you can also remove python-sphinx from build dependencies.

(tested by cloning manually the fork and running only make lib)

I packaged this fork of pam-python because I wanted to use howdy without python2 installed since it was removed from the repositories.

Even if this doesn't work on your device, it's working well on mine so far. You can try using this other fork instead:

If the problem is due to the packaging, you are welcome to report it here.

If the problem is due to the program itself, please report it to its own bugtracker.

In any case, please provide useful feedback about your use case scenario, which error you are encountering and related journal messages.
