Description Kasper Dupont 2005-01-05 07:23:45 EST

User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.3)

Description of problem:
After upgrading from kernel-2.6.9-1.6_FC2 to kernel-2.6.9-1.11_FC2
strace no longer works. Only the execve call is printed, then strace
immediately terminates. A core dump from the child process can be
found in the current directory.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Use the strace command. For example: strace ls

Actual Results:  [kasperd@erwin:pts/2:/tmp/tst] ls
[kasperd@erwin:pts/2:/tmp/tst] strace ls
execve("/bin/ls", ["ls"], [/* 43 vars */]) = 0
[kasperd@erwin:pts/2:/tmp/tst] ls

Expected Results:  strace works like in previous kernels:
[kasperd@erwin:pts/2:/tmp/tst] ls
[kasperd@erwin:pts/2:/tmp/tst] strace ls
execve("/bin/ls", ["ls"], [/* 43 vars */]) = 0
[kasperd@erwin:pts/2:/tmp/tst] ls
