[Various] Digested Articles

Hi libc developers,

has anybody an idea what's broken?  We had a number of similar bug


   libc/2474: check fail - testgrp, posix (getpwuid( ) report: cannot find User entry ...)
   Re: libc/2474: contents of my nsswitch.conf

>Release:        glibc 2.2.3

AMD-K6-II 450, debian-gnu-linux (debian 2.2r2)
glibc 2.1.3 (I try with glibc 2.2.2), kernel-2.4.6 (and I try with 2.2.18)
configure with '--prefix=/usr', gcc-2.95 (I try with gcc-3.0)
make check fail! The testgrp.out contain: Cannot find user entry for UID 1000
then, if I run make check once more, it pass the grptest (because the 'testgrp.out' exist!), and the posixtest get fail!

So, if I install the library, I can't login! (may the new getpwuid() realy doesn't find the user ID's!!)

I try to compile the library with different environment (kernels, under different users, different  gcc-s, but the result is always the same.
It is repeated always!
I don't know, because the source code of getpwuid() is full of macros.

Hi Andreas!

I don't touch my /etc/nsswitch.conf (I think). Here is:

# /etc/nsswitch.conf
# Example configuration of GNU Name Service Switch functionality.
# If you have the `glibc-doc' and `info' packages installed, try:
# `info libc "Name Service Switch"' for information about this file.

passwd:         compat
group:          compat
shadow:         compat

hosts:          files dns
networks:       files

protocols:      db files
services:       db files
ethers:         db files
rpc:            db files

netgroup:       nis

Thanks a lot!!
