Comment 1 Bernard Cafarelli gentoo-dev 2011-06-10 11:36:33 UTC
> ConnDis.c:826:21: fatal error: rpc/rpc.h: No such file or directory

I guess we'll have to patch nx-X11 lib/X11/Imakefile to point to libtirpc headers/libs...
Comment 2 fkater 2015-03-27 10:46:24 UTC
I doubt we need the dependency to glibc-2.14.

We ran nx for months against glibc-2.19, now glibc-2.20 without

However, we always have to ignore that dependency again and again
when compiling portage stuff.

Please verify if we can drop that old dependency.
Comment 3 Bernard Cafarelli gentoo-dev 2015-03-27 14:46:50 UTC
Hmm the "elibc_glibc? ( || ( net-libs/libtirpc <sys-libs/glibc-2.14 ) )" was only supposed to go in the ebuild when migrated to libtirpc, but it looks like I committed it accidentally a long time ago.

Dropped from the current ebuilds, thanks for the report!
Comment 4 Andreas K. Hüttel archtester gentoo-dev 2017-09-16 18:42:29 UTC
OK this now becomes important again.

ConnDis.c:826:21: fatal error: rpc/rpc.h: No such file or directory
 #include <rpc/rpc.h>

I have no clue about IMake. However, what you need to do is (ideally only for libc >= 2.26): find include paths and library names of libtirpc, and add one to the CFLAGS, the other to the libraries to link.

See for a simple (and therefore very much imperfect) autoconf example.
Comment 6 Bernard Cafarelli gentoo-dev 2017-11-08 11:35:22 UTC
Sorry for the delay, I am working on a version bump that will also fix this problem.

After checking the related NX parts, SunRPC is not needed (code is here as it is based on old xorg), so I will disable it entirely.

net-misc/nx- will be the first version to have this setting (with a few other changes), if all goes well, I'll send it for a stabilization round after usual waiting time

Confirmed works fine on my setup with unmasked glibc-2.26-r3
