I just upgraded from libc.so.4.5.26 to 4.6.27 and rebooted just
to make sure everything was happy and on booting I noticed that
it couldn't get my nfs mounts connected. On further investigation
it appears that nslookup and any network stuff is a bit stuffed now!
i.e. nslookup works on full names and machines within my immediate
domain (math.waikato.ac.nz) but not on machines within the larger
domain of waikato.ac.nz which it used to be able to do. I renamed
libc.so.4.6.27 to something unrecognisable by ldconfig and made
the old libc (libc.so.4.5.26) be pointed to by libc.so.4 and
rebooted and it now resolves addresses properly (as before)
so that must mean it's a bug in libc.so.4.6.27 right?
Anyone else noticed this?
Is it already well known?
(boring ~/.signature eh?)
