I have potato (sparc) and nis doesn't work either. Before that I have
slink and nis never work for me. I have written to this list about
the problem, but nis never got fixed.

Now, just by exasperation, I go to the redhat site, grab the package
ypbind, extract the binary ypbind in it (using the mc file manager),
then substitute this ypbind to that of debian. Amazingly, it works !
