The w command reports "WHAT" column. Do you mean that these processes (from the
"WHAT") don't exist?

Comment 2 Christian Iseli 2007-01-22 10:54:43 UTC
This report targets the FC3 or FC4 products, which have now been EOL'd.

Could you please check that it still applies to a current Fedora release, and
either update the target product or close it ?
