------------------------------------

+1 for the PATCH.
I could apply and build it locally. Error was due to failure of unit test publishing.

> Ranger currently uses shadow based authentication if configured for unix authentication.
This way of authenticating is somewhat outdated as any recent Linux system (and many of the
BSDs) have PAM available. PAM allows multiple authentication sources and also does authorization.
> Ranger should be able to use PAM for authentication
