"SLC6X: system environment/libraries: nss_db

nss_db - An NSS library for the Berkeley DB

License: Sleepycat and LGPLv2+
Vendor: Scientific Linux CERN,
Nss_db is a set of C library extensions which allow Berkeley Databases
to be used as a primary source of aliases, ethers, groups, hosts,
networks, protocol, users, RPCs, services, and shadow passwords
(instead of or in addition to using flat files or NIS). Install nss_db
if your flat name service files are too large and lookups are slow.


nss_db-2.2.3-0.5.pre1.el6_5.1.i686 [682 KiB] Changelog by Nalin Dahyabhai (2014-04-21):
- bump and rebuild (#1088776)
nss_db-2.2.3-0.4.pre1.el6_2.1.i686 [682 KiB] Changelog by Nalin Dahyabhai (2012-02-17):
- when the initgroups function needs to parse a group entry which contains a
  large list of users, reinitialize the buffer that we pass to the parsing
  function, which destroyed what we passed to it the previous time (#788668)
nss_db-2.2.3-0.3.pre1.el6_1.1.i686 [681 KiB] Changelog by Nalin Dahyabhai (2011-07-06):
- import patch to handle initgroups directly rather than forcing libc to
  use the enumeration interfaces, which could result in two threads calling
  initgroups() at the same time to both get a subset of the right answers
