Description Chris Slack 2005-08-05 03:23:05 EDT
Description of problem:

WordPerfect 8 does not run with the kernel on ES4.  This bug is a duplicate of 
BugZilla #156383 on FC3.  The problem was resolved a couple of weeks ago with 
the latest kernel-2.6.12-1.1372_FC3.  Is it possible for this bug fix to be 
incorporated into ES4?

Everytime WP runs it generates an error that says:

  Could not create a new process -- wpexc

This is a critical need for our use of ES4 and is preventing us from upgrading 
a key server.

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


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run wp
Actual results:

WordPerfect launches with 2 error messages.  The first says:

  WARNING: Invalid SETUP Auxiliary Files Path

The second says:

  Could not create a new process -- wpexc

WordPerfect then dies and exits back to a command prompt.  This is all 
happening when trying to run the text version of WordPerfect, not the X 

Expected results:

WordPerfect running as normal.

Reference #156383 for FC3 issues and resolution.
