Description Enrico Scholz 2007-05-11 13:35:48 EDT
Description of problem:

/lib/lsb/init-functions in FC7 uses functions to implement the 'pidofproc'
functions. This breaks common use cases like

| pids=$(pidofproc foo)

Such constructs work fine in FC6.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. . /lib/lsb/init-functions
2. echo $(pidofproc bash)

Actual results:

FC7 fails with 'bash: pidofproc: command not found'

Expected results:

FC6 gives out list of bash-processes
Comment 1 Eric Harney 2007-05-21 10:54:08 EDT
I think the real problem here is that somebody typo'd the pidofproc function and
renamed it "pidofprof" in /lib/lsb/init-functions.
