Description

Right now the book does not address this issue. http://linuxfromscratch.org/pipermail/hlfs-book/2006-July/000604.html Patrakov suggested a better fix for this on lfs-dev towords the beginning of july. http://linuxfromscratch.org/pipermail/lfs-dev/2006-July/057582.html . Right now the best solution to me seems to be this sed:

sed -i '/config.h/a#undef ENABLE_NLS' src/who.c

As it fixes the buffer overflow issue and the issue with posistioning in languages where the length of the field name may be more then 10 characters.

Resolution: wontfix
Status: newclosed

Currently the CLFS 1.0.0 book is not going to be building a utf-8 compatible system. So for the time being, marking this as wontfix. We can revisit this under 1.1.0 or 1.2.0.
