Having difficulties setting up passwd; "no matching password file entry..."
Hi there everyone. I currently have puppy linux, but I'm kind of "Debianizing" it. (Coined just now.) Basically what I have done is installed dpkg, apt-get, then I've gone on to install other packages like C++ compilers, an attempt at synaptic, and even gtk. The problem is now, lots of packages keep requiring passwd as a dependency, and when that tries to install, I pretty much get this back:

If anyone can help me get around this problem so I can get passwd working once and for all, that would be great.
