Ouch. Would you care to read the package information?

-- snip --
The nlogin package provides a graphical login screen. The program is
usually invoked by a corresponding entry in /etc/inittab for the GEM
runlevel. It will ask the login information from whoever wants to start
a GEM session and then starts GEM with her identity.

So, this is a /bin/login? Mhmm ...

And that's a Sparemint package? Mhmm ...

WTF do you need /bin/login? Doesn't the daemon work?

And just to clarify: I do not owe you or anyone else anything. If you
don't like the port, or the decisions I made, DIY, but don't get on the
high horse and say something I did "has no excuse".

The whole key generation is handled by OpenSSL. If it's slow(er), I
can't do anything about it.
