This bug is reported many times elsewhere and (apparently) fixed as of RH7.3
(?) but never made it into 2.1AS errata.
Duplicate of 65891, 55234, 58183, 55234 and 44845.
...and would someone please show Florian LaRoche how to mark bugs as
duplicates? Those bugs were all closed with RAWH, whereas all but one should
be DUPL instead.
Normally, this would be a severity NORMAL bug, but I'm trying to cluster NIS

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Attempt to start ypxfrd via /etc/rc.d/init/ypxfrd
Actual Results: execvp() error, ypxfrd does not start
Expected Results: rpc.ypxfrd should be called, not "ypxfrd"
This appears to be resolved in the most recent released version of 2.1, which
has ypserv-2.8-0.AS21E in it. Closing.
