Introduction to rpcsvc-proto

The rpcsvc-proto package contains the rcpsvc protocol files and headers, formerly included with glibc, that are not included in replacement libtirpc-1.3.3, along with the rpcgen program.



Development versions of BLFS may not build or run some packages properly if dependencies have been updated since the most recent stable versions of the book.
