Will 12.04 get 0.8.10?

Asked by Mike Holisky

I just started testing 12.04 and so far I've found nslcd 0.8.4 unstable and it does not appear to be a stable release. Will 0.8.10 get released for 12.04?

I say it's unstable because I've witness it not starting on boot sometimes. It's the sometimes that gets me, as I don't always see the same results in syslog.

You could report a bug stating the fixes the newer version gives. If there are great changes or benefits then it may get updated sooned. I cannot find a PPA with the newer version.

The 0.8 series was only declared stable with the 0.8.10 release. The releases before that all had a warning to that effect.

The 0.8.10 release contains a few bugfixes but the biggest improvements are in the Debian packaging. Also see launchpad bug 1000205 for more background information. Version 0.8.10-1 is in Debian.

Having said that, I would be interested to know what the issues during boot were. There could be subtle problems with name lookups not being available while starting up nslcd. For the most stable effect spell out the uri and base options, using only IP addresses in the uri option.

Can you help with this problem?
