lol, so I manually downloaded the libpam files from ubuntu, and all of
their dependencies, and installed them all, and I now have 8 broken
packages.  To reinstall those broken packages would remove hundreds,
and to remove them would remove hundreds, like such favorites as bash
and dpkg.  I'm just going to remove all these ubuntu libpam-related
packages for now.  I have a sequencer working now in Windows with
which to do my work (it's far easier to use than Rosegarden anyway),
then when I have a week or so with no deadlines I'll try to get all
this working.
I must be doing something wrong.  I've had nothing but problems with
Linux since I started, that no one else seems to have.
