.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\&.
