Description of problem:
When booting a Redhat Enterprise 3-based machine with a vanilla kernel
(2.4.26) ypbind causes segmentation fault when starting. When using
the official RHEL-kernels (2.4.21-9.0.3.EL) it works fine.
See the attached URL for a more in-depth description of what happens
when starting ypbind. Full strace-log present.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
ypbind-1.12-5 and vanilla kernel 2.4.26 from kernel.org
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot RHEL3-based machine with vanilla 2.4.26 kernel
2. Start ypbind
Actual Results: ypbind causes a segmentation fault. Unable to bind
to the NIS domain.
Expected Results: We should have been bound to the NIS-domain.
The problem has been present on all RHEL3-based machines I've tested
We do not support custom-built kernels, so since this is not a problem
on the kernels we supply, I am closing this bug.
