6.36.1. Установка Inetutils

Fix an incompatibility between this package and Glibc-2.17

sed -i -e '/gets is a/d' lib/stdio.in.h

Prepare Inetutils for compilation:

./configure --prefix=/usr  \
    --libexecdir=/usr/sbin \
    --localstatedir=/var   \
    --disable-ifconfig     \
    --disable-logger       \
    --disable-syslogd      \
    --disable-whois        \

Значение параметров configure:


This option prevents Inetutils from installing the ifconfig program, which can be used to configure network interfaces. LFS uses ip from IPRoute2 to perform this task.


This option prevents Inetutils from installing the logger program, which is used by scripts to pass messages to the System Log Daemon. Do not install it because Util-linux installed a version earlier.


This option prevents Inetutils from installing the System Log Daemon, which is installed with the Sysklogd package.


This option disables the building of the Inetutils whois client, which is out of date. Instructions for a better whois client are in the BLFS book.


This disables the installation of the various network servers included as part of the Inetutils package. These servers are deemed not appropriate in a basic LFS system. Some are insecure by nature and are only considered safe on trusted networks. More information can be found at http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/blfs/view/svn/basicnet/inetutils.html. Note that better replacements are available for many of these servers.
