Description si 1999-04-24 12:49:59 EDT
The accounting utilities are wrongly compiled with the
acct struct found from sys/acct.h instead of the one in
linux/acct.h, which causes the it to have the wrong size.
The information returned by, for example the 'lastcomm'
command is garbled.

Cristian, fix this.
Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 1999-08-31 12:02:59 EDT
this is fixed in the latest psacct RPMs in Raw Hide, IIRC.
