There is still an important issue with NIS, has anybody try to explore
it yet? I corrected a 64 issue some time ago, but ypbind still
segfault after a long time. Maybe it is not Alpha-specific as I saw
the same problem on powerpc machines.
Am I the only one to see a annoying bug with dpkg: when passing a
non-existent .deb, it segfaults when using a non-US locale?
ex: LANG=fr_FR dpkg -i foo.deb
#LANG=de_DE dpkg -i foo.deb
#LANG=fr_FR dpkg -i foo.deb
#LANG=en_US dpkg -i foo.deb
dpkg: error processing foo.deb (--install):
cannot access archive: No such file or directory
