Description Enrico Scholz 2000-09-22 10:27:55 EDT
syslog makes a connection to localhost, port 111 at startup and waits until
it's established or a timeout occurs.  That's why my startup hangs around 5
minutes at this point.

I am using a @host-entry in /etc/syslog.conf and linux-2.4.0-test8. The
connection attempt can be seen with strace.

I suggest to swap the syslog (12) and portmap (13) startup-positions, so
portmap runs before syslog will be executed.

It's a change in the kernel's socket behavior.  glibc's RPC stuff
needs tweaked. Alternatively, don't define an NIS domainname
until you run ypbind (this is what the rawhide initscripts and
ypbind will do.)

Assigning to glibc.

Is this still an issue in RHL9?  I very much doubt it.  Please report so that I
can close the bug (or fix the problem).

Closing since I got no reply.
