Description Michael Redinger 2000-04-07 11:02:46 EDT
nsswitch.conf does contain nis(plus) entries. When kernel 2.4 is out, this
might be a problem. AFAIK this could cause major slowdowns. nisplus should
probably be commented out (maybe let the installer do this? He does  ask
anyway if you want to use NIS).

This was dealt with for later releases. Glibc and the kernel are also somewhat
smarter about error icmps in the 2.4 kernel world too
