I already had those packages installed, I edited
/etc/pam.d/system-auth by hand, following the example in this

There is nothing mentioned about nsswitch.conf and when I try to
create a user via it works, but I canŽt login with
that user.

I understand that this canŽt work as long as the login-program doesnŽt
use ldap.

Can you point me to what I should change in my setup?

thank you,
