Those setting for nsswitch.conf don't look right to me. There should have been a message printed out when you installed one of the linux_base ports, telling you how to configure it. I think the fc4 version is the default these days; if that is what you are using, the message is in the file /usr/ports/emulators/linux_base-fc4/pkg-message -- Lowell Gilbert, embedded/networking software engineer, Boston area http://be-well.ilk.org/~lowell/ _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
