gdm3 requires libpam-systemd

Hi everyone.

I am migrating from Wheezy to Devuan Jessie, following the steps at https://git.devuan.org/dev1fanboy/Upgra … -jessie.md

When I try the dist-upgrade, gdm3 has an unmet dependency. So when I try to upgrade only gdm3, apt tells me:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 gdm3 : Depends: libpam-systemd but it is not installable

libpam-systemd does not exist in any of the Devuan repositories. What should I do to resolve this?

Thank you.

That's because libpam-systemd is a banned package.  Choose another option as ChuangTzu suggested.

Re: gdm3 requires libpam-systemd

Or else install libpam-elogind as a replacement for libpam-systemd.

I didn't think of something as simple as removing the offending packages. Thanks everyone.
