Slackware64 14.0: calls for /usr/lib still present


Hi,

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...:

Code:
# /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.:

Code:
# 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:
  1. MINGID = 1 instead of 500
  2. MERGE_PASSWD and MERGE_GROUP are "false"
  3. The 'publickey' option is deactivated.

Cheers,

Niki

Some makefiles are just badly made and ignore the libdir/libexec variables set by configure, patch it, post a bug report or live with it. It's just sloppy programming.
