I've Googled my fingers sore and can't solve this one.
I have a Slackware 12.0 server in my classroom with 10 PCs running either Ubuntu, Lubuntu or Xubuntu. Pupils log on with NIS and then have their home directories on the server shared by NFS. Works great!
I recently decided to try SliTaz 4.0 and am stunned by the speed!! This is what we need. It is superb. So I installed it on the hard drive of a test client PC, then installed the portmap, nfs, ypbind and yp-tools. I can mount shares on the server - great. But I cannot get loggins to work. ypcat passwd, ypwhich, ypmatch nisuser passwd work great. su and id do not find a match - unknown user. I have spent a while on this and I'm used to setting up NIS. I have tinkered with nsswitch.conf, hosts, put all the +...s in passwd, group and shadow.
I set up a server at home to test and see if its a school server error. My dual (at least) boot computer can login to my server in Xubuntu but gives the same problems as at school when booted into SliTaz.
Any NIS on SliTaz expert out there?
