switch fedora over to using TIRPC-enabled nfs-utils
Last modified: 2009-09-24 18:02:04 EDT
IPv6 support will require that nfs-utils be build with --enable-tirpc. While some of the IPv6 work is still in progress, there's no reason not to go ahead and build nfs-utils with TIRPC support in the interim.
This should mostly just be changing some things in the specfile (package dependencies and running configure with --enable-tirpc).
Created attachment 346545 [details]
specfile patch -- enable building with tirpc
This patch seems to work. I think I've got all of the build dependencies correct.
Steve, any objection to me committing this sometime soon?
Well, I would like to see an discussion upstream as to how
willing other distros are to be dependent on and or
I guess I'm a bit uncomfortable moving in front of upstream
by enabling tirpc only in Fedora rawhide. I would be much
more comfortable if we got the buy in (i.e. a williness
to accept libtirpc) from the entire community...
But in the end, I do understand that if the community wants
IPv6 support, they will have to accept libtirpc...
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 11 development cycle.
Changing version to '11'.
More information and reason for this action is here:
On Friday, FESCO approved client-side NFS over IPv6 as a F12 feature.
We don't have IPv6 yet enabled, but TI-RPC is now turned on in nfs-utils.
