Some time ago I made a bug report for yptools, which contained calls for various helper tools in /usr/lib instead of /usr/lib64. I duly noted the correction in 14.0 RC's ChangeLog.txt some time ago.
I just upgraded my office server from 13.37 to 14.0 (doing a clean install from scratch) and noticed the bug is manifestly still present. More exactly, when I initialize the NIS server using the following command...:
# /usr/lib64/yp/ypinit -m
... I get a bunch of error messages informing me that various applications were not found in /usr/lib.
The old workaround from Slackware 13.37 still works though, e. g.:
# cd /usr/lib
# ln -s /usr/lib64/yp .
I don't know if its' of any importance, but I do make some tweaks to /var/yp/Makefile:
- MINGID = 1 instead of 500
- MERGE_PASSWD and MERGE_GROUP are "false"
- The 'publickey' option is deactivated.
