Description Dirk Heinrichs 2000-07-26 06:47:15 EDT
I recently changed my little private network to authenticate users via pam_ldap and nss_ldap (and thus removed ordinary users from /etc/passwd). 
Everything works fine so far, but when I now visit a site with netscape that executes a java applet netscape crashes right after the "starting java" 
message. If I put a line for that user back in /etc/passwd, netscape works fine with java again. If I delete the line it crashes.

If you remove the user's entry from /etc/passwd, what does
"getent passwd username" output?

Comment 3 Dirk Heinrichs 2000-07-28 02:10:43 EDT
Seems that previous comment didn't make it to the archive.
"getent passwd username" gives me a full record of the given user, like one that would be entered in /etc/passwd
(incl. encrypted passwd).

FWIW, this was reported once before, but we've never been able to
reproduce this here.

What version of netscape?bv
Comment 5 Dirk Heinrichs 2000-07-31 11:33:57 EDT
Netscape is version 4.72


Comment 6 Bill Nottingham 2000-07-31 12:50:17 EDT
Does it persist with earlier or later versions?
Comment 7 Brent Fox 2006-04-20 15:05:14 EDT
Closing due to old age.  Please reopen a new bug against a more recent version
if this bug still exists.
