NSS module for MySQL

This package provides a Name Service Switch module that allows your MySQL server act as a name service. It currently features full account support (shadow, passwd and group).
Package version:1.0-4+b1


This software is designed for GNU/Linux with glibc 2.1 or later.
NSS-MySQL should compile with gcc 2.72 and later (including gcc3*).
A Solaris port has begun, but it should be considered as alpha.

If you are upgrading from a previous version, ALWAYS read UPGRADE.

Don't use it unless you can afford to lose access to your system and 
be forced to boot from floppy or into single user mode.

passwd:		files mysql
shadow:		files mysql (only if
