+.SH "DESCRIPTION"
+.PP
+\fIpam_namespace_helper\fR
+is a helper program for the
+\fIpam_namespace\fR
+module that sets up a private namespace for a session with polyinstantiated directories\&. The helper ensures that the namespace mount points exist before they are started to be used for the polyinstantiated directories\&. Mount points for home directories (lines with $HOME) are not created\&.
+.PP
+\fIpam_namespace_helper\fR
+should be run by systemd at system startup\&. It should also be run by the administrator after defining the polyinstantiated directories but before enabling them\&.
