Comment 1 James McDermott 2004-04-07 16:44:40 UTC
Other interesting info, the -a option appears to "fix" the problem...
or substituting rsh seems to work too.

Comment 3 Pancrazio `ezio' de Mauro 2004-06-02 08:43:35 UTC
As a workaround:

LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.4.19 rexec <arguments>

Comment 4 Tomas Mraz 2004-11-16 13:22:56 UTC
I see this with FC 3 as well. The problem is that the rexec calls
sigaction on every signal < NSIG. But one of the calls will fail.
The easiest fix would be to simply ignore failed sigaction call.


Comment 5 Karel Zak 2004-11-17 17:19:57 UTC
Fixed in devel branch (FC4) and will fixed in RHE-3-U5.

Comment 6 Karel Zak 2004-11-23 07:38:25 UTC
Fixed in RHEL-4 too.
