Okay.  Sorry about that, thanks for the pointers of what I should provide.


I’m using MariaDB 10.4.13.  My build process untar’s the source for each build, so cached files shouldn’t be an issue.  I’m cmake’ing as follows:


(cd /data/sources/mariadb-10.4.13 && \

        TMPDIR="/data/sources/tmp" \









...at least today.  After much searching the system for all of the bits it’s looking for, cmake eventually reports the error noted earlier.


Logs attached, apologies for large attachments.

Hi Chris!

When trying to get help on this, it's helpful if you provide a bit more background information. Useful pieces:

·         The full cmake configure line

·         The commit hash (or version) of MariaDB that you are trying to compile.

·         Both CMakeOutput.log and CMakeError.log

I tested out the following line and it worked for me:


You may have some leftover CMakeCache file from a previous attempt that is interfering with this. Try making sure you are doing the configure from a clean source directory and see what happens.

Hey there again.  So, I just today considered turning off PAM, largely to not have to deal with the setuid auth_pam_tool.  We’re not going to be using pam, just internal accounts, so.


I added -DPLUGIN_AUTH_PAM=NO and -DPLUGIN_AUTH_PAM_V1=NO to my build options, the same way I had turned off various other plugins I don’t need.  But, when running cmake, I now see:


CMake Error at cmake/plugin.cmake:283 (MESSAGE):                         

  Plugin AUTH_PAM cannot be built                                      

Call Stack (most recent call first):                                            

  CMakeLists.txt:413 (CONFIGURE_PLUGINS)                                    


I looked in CMakeOutput.log and CMakeError.log but don’t see anything that looks like related errors.  And, I asked it not to build AUTH_PAM plugin, so it complaining that it can’t seems unusual.


What did I miss?
