I'd suggest finding a Linux forum to ask that question (and first
googling to see if the answer is already out there).  I'd also suggest
creating a simple test program that just tries to lookup "testuser"
using getpwnam() (you could easily tweak the code I sent in a message
just recently as a good start for such a program).  Try running that,
ensure that it fails in a similar manner, and then look for information
on getting that test program to work.
