Description of problem:
ypcat/ypmatch fails to retrieve lines in passwd file (nis), which
contains norwegian special characters.
This makes the Fedora Core 1 workstation unreliable at work with user
administration in a NIS environment.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Create a NIS user where GECOS field contains norwegian spesial
2.ypcat passwd | grep <username>
Actual Results: No output
Expected Results: Full information from the NIS map
login with affected users on the Fedora Core 1 workstation is OK.
This failure is not occurring in RH 7.2 Linux.
Fedora Core 1 is maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for security updates
only. If this problem is a security issue, please reopen and reassign to the
Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a security issue and hasn't been resolved in
the current FC5 updates or in the FC6 test release, reopen and change the
version to match.
NOTE: Fedora Core 1 is reaching the final end of support even by the Legacy
project. After Fedora Core 6 Test 2 is released (currently scheduled for July
26th), there will be no more security updates for FC1. Please use these next two
weeks to upgrade any remaining FC1 systems to a current release.
Closed per above message and lack of response. Note that FC1 and FC2 are not even
supported by Fedora Legacy anymore.
