There should be a dedicated user and group to take control of the
rpcbind daemon after
it is started. Issue the following commands as the
groupadd -g 28 rpc && useradd -c "RPC Bind Daemon Owner" -d /dev/null -g rpc \ -s /bin/false -u 28 rpc
In order to get rpcbind to work properly, first fix the package to use correct service name:
sed -i "/servname/s:rpcbind:sunrpc:" src/rpcbind.c
Install rpcbind by running the following commands:
./configure --prefix=/usr \ --bindir=/sbin \ --enable-warmstarts \ --with-rpcuser=rpc && make
This package does not come with a test suite.
Now, as the
switch is used so the rpcbind daemon will run as an
unprivileged user instead of the
unit included in the blfs-systemd-units-20160602 package.
