Description ralcan 1999-02-10 06:06:58 EST
When some of the programs at /etc/rc.d/init.d/ are called
with the 'status' parameter, sometimes they report an output
like this:
$ /etc/rc.d/init.d/sendmail status
sendmail (pid 1378
2012) is running...
This is due to a bug in the 'status' function. The next
patch I submit removes this minor bug. BTW I hope you
release a new version of Red Hat Linux soon (I too use
<                 pid=`ps auxww | grep '[^[]'$1 | awk
'{print $2}'`
>                 pid=`ps auxww | grep '[ ]'$1 | awk '{print
<                         echo "$1 (pid $pid) is running..."
>                         echo -n "$1 (pid "
>                       echo -n $pid
>                       echo    ") is running..."

this is fixed in a later initscripts package.
