For those of you who don't know, fink (http://fink.sourceforge.net) is a debian-based package management program for OS X which ports a number of *nix programs to the mac. Using fink, I installed mc (Midnight Commander), my favorite terminal-based file management utility for linux. During the install, it told me it had to edit users/groups via NetInfo or something of the sort. I'm just wondering what this means to me. What if I should uninstall this package - or what if I were to uninstall fink? To the best of my knowledge, uninstallation of fink encompasses simple rm -rf of the /sw directory in addition to ~/.cshrc ... nothing about editing anything in NetInfo? I had thought that fink and its packages made no changes to the rest of the mac filesystem?? Help appreciated, tia.
