To make use of systemd-homed one needs to modify its PAM configuration. However, changing PAM configuration can be dangerous and there does not seem to be any consensus on how to do it[1]. It would be better if Arch has some recommended solution.

P.S.: not sure if this is relevant but seems to be a problem[2] if we would like to allow login with either pam_unix or pam_systemd_home.

This task depends upon

I've made an AUR[1] pkg that includes the changes from the Wiki[2]. Works so far with normal users, as well as homed-users.

What about other packages that provide pam services that use pam_unix for auth, account or password?
