Comment 1 Jakub Jelinek 2005-08-10 10:46:35 EDT
nscd-2.3.5-10 has been miscompiled, so it (sometimes) creates corrupted
persistent database files.  Please try nscd-2.3.5-10.2 from FC4 testing updates
(and make sure to rm -f /var/db/nscd/* after the upgrade).
Comment 2 Marek Greško 2005-08-11 08:04:55 EDT
nscd-2.3.5-10.2 seems to solve the problem.
