           Summary: stage and su users works only with /etc/passwd
           Product: Automated Linux From Scratch
           Version: 1.2.0
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P5
         Component: Back End (XML Handlers)

I have a problem with some packages (courier-imap for example).
These packages need some users other than root, and all my users, except root,
are in LDAP. So, the stage just fails.
I've made a quick and dirty hack (see patch in bug #734) to use getpwent instead
of fgetpwent, so nALFS can work with nss on Linux with glibc.
It's just a hack and I know it is not good, but works for me for now.
