Description Milan Zázrivec 2006-09-26 10:28:45 UTC

gpm daemon keeps stdin/out/err open after detaching

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
/etc/init.d/gpm stop;
perl -e 'open F,"/etc/init.d/gpm start|"; my @out=<F>; close F;'

Comment 1 Petr Rockai 2006-09-26 10:55:04 UTC
Gpm currently fails to build in brew (!?), the fix is in cvs for now.

Comment 2 Petr Rockai 2006-09-26 12:11:26 UTC
Worked this time.
