gpm keeps stdin/out/err file descriptors open after detaching from terminal
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:34 EST
Description of problem:
gpm daemon keeps stdin/out/err open after detaching
itself from terminal, causing eg. pipes from initscript
to hang for the lifetime of gpm.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
perl -e 'open F,"/etc/init.d/gpm start|"; my @out=<F>; close F;'
Gpm currently fails to build in brew (!?), the fix is in cvs for now.
Worked this time.
