Description ph0n1c 2000-05-30 11:49:38 EDT
"killproc" in /etc/rc.d/init.d/functions fails to stop some daemons.

Instead of:(line 98)------------------------------------------------

# Save basename.
base=`basename $1`

# Find pid.
pid=`pidofproc $base`

It should be:------------------------------------------------

# Save basename.
base=`basename $1`

# Find pid.
pid=`pidofproc $1`

Since "pidofproc" does its own "basename" if necessary.

should be fixed in initscripts-5.14-1.
(Please try and report bugs against the proper components - thanks!)
