Description Bastien Nocera 2007-01-19 11:11:35 EST

In nsswitch.conf:
passwd:     compat
passwd_compat: nisplus

In /etc/passwd:

Running "getent passwd" will create ~1 connection for each user in the netgroup

This is similar to bug 192327, but using the compat mode, to be able to use the
netgroups facility in /etc/passwd
