Re: Slowness w/ large passwd file (fwd)

I have updated my RH 5.0 to glibc-2.0.7-13 and I am also still seing a lag
in authentication (hopefully this is done in a test machine and not one in
a real environment).
I have got a bit less delay than you have (with a passwd as large as
yours), but I suppose this is due to the fact that I have a dual PII 300
MHz machine.

Did you manage to solve the problem? Could it be a PAM problem?

I remember the days from RH 4 and I think I didn't have a delay as long as
this one.

Thanks for any info.
