Description glenn 1999-01-08 22:03:55 UTC
This is a known problem with 2.0.7 glibc. I've just spent 4 or 5 hours tracking it down, and I much would have rather found out about it somewhere in the man pages, or any other documenatation. Please help to try to get this fixed.
Comment 1 glenn 1999-01-08 22:05:59 UTC
The main problem here is that if you use NIS with a netgroup, putting the netgroup name into hosts.lpd doesn't enable remote printing. It makes it more difficult to manage a print server.

is this bug stilol valid with RH 6.0 ? On RH 5.2, was the nss_Compat module used (the one that supports netgroups)?
Comment 3 Cristian Gafton 1999-07-02 20:24:59 UTC
One must use the nss_compat module to have netgroups support. Bug closed because of lack of feedback
