The /bin/domainname and /bin/dnsdomainname scripts have the flags for `hostname` reversed -- currently `domainname` uses "-d" and `dnsdomainname` uses "-y".

`domainname` should use "-y" to set the NIS/YP domain, as it has done in every other Unix system. `dnsdomainname` should use "-d".

(I don't actually see the reason for keeping /bin/domainname. If anyone actually uses NIS, they will have extra/yp-tools installed, which already provides its own /usr/bin/domainname.)

inetutils 1.9.1-1
yp-tools 2.12-2
This task depends upon
