3.2. glibc 2 and
Forgot all this if you use the new GNU C Library 2.x (aka
libc6). It has real NSS (name switch service) support, which makes
it very flexible, and contains support for the following NIS/NIS+
maps: aliases, ethers, group, hosts, netgroups, networks,
protocols, publickey, passwd, rpc, services and shadow. The GNU C
Library has no problems with shadow passwords over NIS.
