Description Chris Siebenmann 1999-04-06 16:25:48 EDT
Despite having rwhod and rwho, RedHat doesn't have an
ruptime (even in RawHide). If you're interested, I can
send you the source I use here (derived from a couple
of versions found on the net/Sunsite/etc for Linux, which
in turn were derived from 4.4BSD if I remember right).
Comment 1 Jeff Johnson 1999-04-06 16:49:59 EDT
Please send the source. Thanks.
Comment 2 Chris Siebenmann 1999-04-07 18:52:59 EDT
I mailed in the source following the FAQ on mailing in patches
to bugzilla, but it doesn't seem to have shown up here (unless
something is lagging in the update stuff). If the source has
really gone missing, I will email it to the address of choice
so as to get it submitted.

Comment 3 Jeff Johnson 1999-04-09 14:16:59 EDT
Ruptime added in rwho-0.10-23. Thanks for the source.
Comment 4 Gilbert E. Detillieux 1999-07-14 19:14:59 EDT
ruptime now works like a charm, but the man page doesn't show the
options correctly (at least not on a RedHat 5.2 system).  The
following patch fixes that.  (I'm not sure it's the ideal fix, but it
seems to do the job.)
