RedHat 4.1 ypbind - where?

Where is ypbind on RedHat 4.1? It's not in any of the yp*.rpm, although the man page is in yp-clients.
Is this an omission, or has nobody tried using RH4.1 as an NIS client before?

If you are not glibc... you'll have to grab the sources and recompile...

Hmm, could you clarify the answer a bit please?

I've installed every package on the CD, and looked on the RPM download sites. What I can't understand is why the man page in in yp-clients, but the binary isn't. Do you mean that you don't get ypbind with RH4.1 at all? That would seem a little odd to me. RH5.1 has an RPM called ypbind, but you can't use RH5 RPMs in RH4.

Am I missing something obvious? I've had to borrow a NeXT for the rest of the week, as all I've got is RedHat 4.1 and I need ypbind to set up a NIS server running on Netware (yuk) by the middle of next week.

The problem is that redhat 4.1 didn't include ypbind... By that time I think there was no such package, just sources... Next releases changed several thing... And the most important was the C standard library. If you use 4.1 you don't have the new version (called glibc), and all available rpm at redhat are glibc.

You have two choices: upgrade to redhat 5.x or recompile from sources. You can try grab redhat 5.1 yp*src.rpm and thengive the following command:

rpm -i yp_package.src.rpm
rpm -bb /usr/src/redhat/SPECS/yp_package

and hopefully you'll find in /usr/src/redhat/RPMS the packages you need... But if you don't... go to /usr/src/redhat/SOURCES and build by hand...

Good Luck

Oops... I forgot to mention and rpm upgrade [.rpm files are not compatibles...] and... lots of upgrades... Maybe you just have to grab from the net yp*.tar.gz and recompile each package by hand...
