Description Daniel Qarras 2009-05-13 12:19:06 EDT
Description of problem:
glibc-2.10 introduced better support for gshadow via nsswitch.conf (1) but it seems that some rules in /var/yp/Makefile are missing corresponding changes for NIS. It would be nice if the default Makefile would include all necessary bits for seamless gshadow support.

1) http://sourceware.org/cgi-bin/cvsweb.cgi/libc/nss/nsswitch.conf.diff?cvsroot=glibc&r1=1.2&r2=1.3
Comment 1 Fedora Admin XMLRPC Client 2011-03-09 08:53:11 EST
This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database.  Reassigning to the new owner of this component.
Comment 2 Honza Horak 2011-05-09 09:19:53 EDT
For me it seems that gshadow support in /var/yp/Makefile is enabled by default:

# Should we merge the group file with the gshadow file ?
# MERGE_GROUP=true|false

If you think it should be done in another way, please, give me more info.

I think everything is correct as-is, not sure anymore what was the case I was thinking when I opened the bug. Thanks.
