Re: Broken ppp/diald in unstable?

That was reported a million times before on this list, and it hence covered
in the new FAQ. 

The error is neither with netstd/netbase, nor with diald or ppp.  You have to
change the file /etc/nsswitch.conf from

	networks:       files dns

	networks:       files

and all will work just fine.  Proof:
