While it looks like it install/runs fine (i.e, linux-flash9 works,

Following this advice, all I could find,
The fix is, to tell /compat/linux/etc/nsswitch.conf to look at NIS too.
Is UID 0 in your /etc/passwd? Can you try changeing
/compat/linux/etc/nsswitch.conf to something like this:

passwd:     files nisplus nis
shadow:     files nisplus nis
group:      files nisplus nis

Uid 0 is in my /etc/passwd, there's no /compat/linux/etc/passwd., and
changing /compat/linux/etc/nsswitch.conf to read the same doesn't fix
the error message.

Advice, suggestions?

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

You're right, missed the message during the install, scrolled off screen. Following the pkg-message in /usr/ports/emulators/linux_base-f8/pkg-message and reinstalling linux-gtk2-2.6.10_1 still gives me the same message.

I knew I forgot something with the original message.
