Description Need Real Name 2001-05-08 16:00:39 EDT
Description of Problem:
Name: mktemp Version: 1.5 Release: 9
mktemp-1.5-9 had a patch for "mktemp -d" on glibc-2.1 system,
but it doesn't work.

Here's a problem. 
"mktemp -d" returns "testing.XXAAR6wj", but the directory created
by "mktemp -d"is "testing.XXXXXXXX". 

[sagami@sandra testing]$ ls
[sagami@sandra testing]$ ls
[sagami@sandra testing]$ mktemp -d testing.XXXXXXXX
[sagami@sandra testing]$ ls
dir_for_testing_mktemp_d/  testing.XXXXXXXX/

Additional Information:

A patch below will solve the problem.
I think you just want to modify
mktemp-1.5-glibc21_compat.patch applied in mktemp-1.5-9.
Best regards.
