Description lionel.cons 1998-12-01 09:38:52 EST
While compiling a small program playing with NIS, I got:

$ cc -O -o ypc ypc.o -lrpcsvc -lnsl
ypc.o: In function `get_all':
ypc.o(.text+0x204): undefined reference to `xdr_ypall'

And indeed I didn't find xdr_ypall in libnsl.so or in any
other library. OTOH, this function is defined in an include

$ grep xdr_ypall /usr/include/rpcsvc/yp_prot.h
extern bool_t xdr_ypall __P ((XDR *__xdrs, struct
ypall_callback * __objp));

(I see the same problem on Red Hat 5.1 BTW)
Comment 1 Preston Brown 1999-03-18 11:10:59 EST
Cristian, this still appears to be the case.  Should we remove the
function prototype, or implement the function?
Comment 2 Cristian Gafton 1999-03-18 14:55:59 EST
I think we will have to remove the function, as Unix98 fails to define
Comment 3 Jay Turner 1999-06-29 13:16:59 EDT
Christian, is this taken care of . . . i.e. can I close this bug?
Comment 4 Cristian Gafton 1999-07-08 22:36:59 EDT
implemented in glibc-2.1.2-1. A new package will hit rawhide shortly
