The lib libnss3-1d is a transitional pkg to ensure smooth transition of all pkgs to libnss3 and it's a Network Security Service library.

Enjoy your Lubuntu ardvark71 and do give the new 16.04 a spin in a VM if you get the chance.
I think you will like it. The new Xubunut 16.04 is really nice!

Cheers Brother:-

Apologies, and you are indeed correct, and it could have been said better. But I feel the point is relevant...the OP *IS* still running an EOL system, and has applied a single patch, while leaving the rest of the system unpatched, and lacking any sort of forward path.

To me, spending 3 months on this would be unthinkable, when I could have solved THIS problem (and the ones that have not come up yet, due to the system being EOL), in 30 minutes with a reload of a current OS. I'm confident there are ways to get Windows XP running on current hardware...but why? Move forward.

I actually do have a copy of the 64 bit version of Lubuntu 16.04 that I've used in the past for other people's systems. It's not too bad, it's a bit heavier, depending on the system, though. I do like the look of the toolbar icons better in 16.04.

Take care, Sister

Hi...

I could have done that in the time you mentioned, too. That wouldn't have been a problem. But I don't want to spend the additional hours (right now) re-installing all the software, transferring all my files I have and redoing all the configuration changes I've made on this system. Although I'm happy with the way it is, I do realize that upgrading the OS is on the horizon and will eventually have to be done.

I do thank you again for the time you spent helping me on this and your ideas.

Regards...

Sorry, this still makes no sense. You don't have hours (??) to spend restoring your system and putting things back the way you like them...but have three months to spend trying to put a temporary patch on a problem that's only going to get worse??

And add to that the fact that you will still have to spend the exact same amount of time doing a fresh load/restore/reconfigure anyway. Zero-sum equation.

TB0ne and ardvark71

Recommend you cease your continued discussion in this thread. I feel none of this adds to the discussion.

I do not feel replies of any type are warranted at this juncture.

jamison20000e, this already problematic thread hadn't received a response in over week and your post is in no way constructive. Please refrain from this behavior moving forward.
