Forwarding to emulation@, which is where the linuxulator gurus hang out (AFAIK). Please keep Da Rock in the Cc:

I ran a search for nss_ldap fedora 10 and simply extracted from the rpm the libnss_ldap*.so* in the usr/lib into the corresponding directory under /compat/linux. One then only has to copy or setup the ldap.conf in /compat/linux/etc/ and change /compat/linux/etc/nsswitch.conf so the it will check files and ldap as in the base. It works a charm when you have issues like the missus with acroread and others not working inexplicably. Run acroread from the command line will give you the clue: getpwuid_r(): failed due to unknown user id. This solution does fix this categorically. I hope this helps others, but I do have one question: why isn't this included in the ports already? I still haven't yet figured out cups and printer selection yet, but I have made some progress... :) Cheers _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
