Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 181998
psutils is not showing >8 character usernames in output
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:24 EST
Description of problem:
i thought this bug was long-since eradicated, but alas, apparently not:
psutils is not showing any greater than 8 character usernames in ps aux output.
haldaemon, for example, on a default core5 test2 install shows up as user 68.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. ps -aux | grep "^68"
68 1661 0.0 0.3 4712 3128 ? Ss 10:00 0:01 hald
68 1674 0.0 0.0 2196 884 ? S 10:00 0:00
it matters not if nscd is enabled or disabled.
i can't believe this bug hasn't been submitted prior to this, but i can't seem
to locate it....
