udev vs ldap at startup
I found my debian/testing computer was hanging on startup. udev was
trying to contact LDAP (via NSS), but LDAP wasn't configured yet.
After much trial and error I came up with:
root@margay:~# tethereal -r /root/tethereal -V | grep Filter:
All of these users and groups mentioned in
/etc/udev/permissions.rules, but none of these users or groups exist
in /etc/passwd or /etc/group. So NSS naturally tried resolving them
using LDAP (the second preference listed in /etc/nsswitch.conf).
Is this a bug in Debian, or a sign of something weird (and perhaps
ancient history) on my computer?
What should be creating the above users/groups?
Could udevd be changed to make debugging these issues easier,
e.g. maybe some sort of verbose mode?
Should I file any bug reports, if so what packages?
