Cannot authenticate on Solus Linux

System users authentication doesn't work on systems with pam.d placed in a different location than /etc/pam.d.

As a workaround, link pam.d to /etc/ directory before installing NoMachine:

sudo ln -s /usr/share/defaults/etc/pam.d /etc/pam.d

or add manually nx and nxlimits files to pam.d directory (/usr/share/defaults/etc/pam.d):

cat /usr/share/defaults/etc/pam.d/nx
auth       include       su
account    include       su
password   include       su
session    include       su

cat /usr/share/defaults/etc/pam.d/nxlimits
session   optional
