Description Enrico Scholz 2004-02-19 23:33:46 UTC
Description of problem:

| # ps axu
| nobody   ... /usr/sbin/gkrellmd -d
  ~~~~~~

(Production-)services should *never* run as 'nobody' since every other
'nobody' process could make bad things with it.

I recommend to create a dedicated user for gkrellmd.


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

gkrellm-daemon-2.1.24-2

Comment 1 Karsten Hopp 2004-03-11 11:11:20 UTC
fixed in gkrellm-daemon-2.1.28-2
