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:

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 guix-install.sh 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,

T G-R
