are you willing to proxy maintain this?

Comment 3 Ted Rodgers 2016-10-17 13:11:11 UTC
I could proxy maintain this for now.  Really need an updated up ypserv to match --current from portage doesn't build.

While I do agree that it would be really great to have a modern ypserv in Portage, as 2.26 is many years out of date, I do not concur with the assertion "current from Portage doesn't build." I am able to build net-nds/ypserv-2.26-r1 on ~amd64 with GCC 5.4.0 just fine.
Comment 5 Ted Rodgers 2016-10-18 05:45:55 UTC
Concur current from portage builds.  Must have been a problem that new install on my build box fixed.

>>> Source compiled.
>>> net-nds/ypserv-2.26-r1 merged.

This change completely breaks any existing Gentoo installation that runs a complete NIS setup.

The problem is that both ypserv and ypbind in portage are too old to work correctly with the updated yp-tools package.

For example:

> # ypwhich
> Error: unsupported version (-1) from ypbind on 'localhost'

A workaround would be to specify version 2:

> # ypwhich -V2
> localhost

But even this type of kludge still requires changes to the init.d script in net-nds/ypbind

I suggest that either all NIS packages (yp-tools, ypbind and ypserv) are all updated at the same time or the new (and incomaptible) yp-tools is masked for the time being.
Comment 9 Pacho Ramos gentoo-dev 2017-07-24 09:17:08 UTC
Open bug reports asking to bump that packages then
Comment 10 peteru 2017-07-24 15:31:46 UTC

I hope bugs #626050 and #626052 are sufficient for this purpose.
