Description Brian Ryner 1999-06-17 21:58:41 UTC
This warning: /var/run/utmp: No such file or directory is printed on startup, using the updated screen package (screen-3.7.6-9)
Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 1999-06-17 22:01:59 UTC
Do you have a /var/run/utmp? Say, you wouldn't happen to be running initscripts-4.19, would you? ;) (it works OK for me here...)
Comment 2 Brian Ryner 1999-06-17 22:07:59 UTC
Yep, I'm running initscripts-4.19-1. Is there a problem with it?
Comment 3 Brian Ryner 1999-06-17 22:09:59 UTC
Oops, didn't answer your first question. I do not have a /var/run/utmp.
Comment 4 Brian Ryner 1999-06-17 22:20:59 UTC
Creating an empty /var/run/utmp seems to fix this... is there a bug in initscripts 4.19 that can cause utmp to be deleted?
Comment 5 Bill Nottingham 1999-06-17 22:24:59 UTC
Yes. It's fixed in later initscripts (if you want to fix it yourself, edit rc.sysinit so the section that creates utmp/wtmp/etc. files is *after* the section that cleans out /var/run. :) )
