Description Jeremiah Johnson 1999-04-15 13:58:20 UTC
If nscd is loaded, tar will die. tar zxvf ssh-2.0.12.tar.gz
will start extracting but will go *EXTREMELY* slow, about 1
file every ten minutes. This is being tested on a multia
with 64megs of RAM, I havn't tested this on my alphastations
yet. But will hopefully today.

are you using NIS?

Comment 2 Jeremiah Johnson 1999-04-15 14:23:59 UTC
No, But if you do a " install everything " nscd will be installed.

Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 1999-04-15 14:31:59 UTC
As of the current version (2.1.1-5) it's set up not to run
by default. (This may be different in 5.9.7).  What's
probably happening is that it's trying to use NIS to look
up user/group names, and is failing; you can either turn
it off, or edit your /etc/nsswitch.conf to not use NIS.
Basically, nscd should only be run if you're using NIS/NIS+.
