Ludo', Zimoun,

If we must have a new interactive prompt in this series, this seems like the better place: we know enough about the host (init) system to
auto-enable nscd on most of them, if the user so wishes.

In practice, you enable nscd by running ‘apt install nscd’ or similar,
and I think we cannot guess what the right command is.  WDYT?

I agree: I was under the assumption that nscd is commonly installed as part of the base OS, but disabled by default at the init system level. If that's not likely to be true, don't let's bother.

Zimoun 写道:
ask and then try to start the service depending on the init system if nscd is not running

If the distro equivalent of ‘service start nscd’ works in the *common* case, I like it. Otherwise a warning/suggestion to manually install & enable it is fine.

My general point was that should do as much as it can with the information it already has ($INIT_SYS) and be consistent in using it, not that we start sniffing $LEGACY_PKG_MANAGER too :-)

Thanks for your work so far, Simon,
