Description Bastien Nocera 2006-05-24 04:00:30 EDT

The ypserv Makefiles strip the binaries before installation, thus rendering the
-debuginfo package pretty useless.

Attached is a patch against the current RHEL3 ypserv-2.8-21, with aclocal-1.7
and automake-1.7 run (they're not available on RHEL3, so needed to include those
in the patch), and a build fix (ypserv wasn't linking against libresolv despite
detecting it).

Also attached is a patch for the .spec file to install the /var/yp directory and
/var/yp/Makefile. I think that installation might still fail as the real /var/yp
will be installed by the Makefile.am in scripts/:
        $(mkinstalldirs) $(DESTDIR)$(varypdir)
        $(INSTALL_DATA) $(top_builddir)/scripts/ypMakefile

This bug will be fixed in the RHEL3.9 ypserv.

I ended up doing a much smaller patch to fix the problem (just patched the
Makefiles instead of the entire autoconf file).

Fix has been built into ypserv-2.8-22
