Description Timur Bakeyev 2004-02-29 16:52:22 UTC
Winbindd manpage is too Linux centristic - it describes setup, appropriate for
Linux, without stressing it. So, for FreeBSD, for example, NSS modules should be
called nss_xxxx.so.1, not libnss_xxx.so. Possibly, it's difficult to make it
substituted in the manpages in sync with OS setup, but at least Linux nature can
be stressed(Not just RH6.2, but Linux in general and say it's platform specific)...
