Some linux apps display warnings about unknown IDs (something like glib about UID 0), but it never prevented the app from functioning. > I guess I need a complete PAM/NSS/LDAP setup in Linux > (/compat/linux/etc), but I have no glue how to get the appropriate > libraries (pam_ldap.so, nss_ldap.so etc.). I don't think so. The main idea for linuxulator is to use as much as possible. We do use FreeBSD native configure and other files and databases. E.g. we _remove_ passwd and other files (as well as some directories) from linux distribution before installing. > Can anybody help? Well, I can give you only some theory here. Sorry. :-( 1. Use FreeBSD database (passwd and friends) before LDAP. 2. Add needed IDs to LDAP database.
