Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 3060
finger's "tty" location is somewhat lame.
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:50 EDT
`finger` prints "/<num>" as the user's tty (if on a pty,
that is), instead of "pts/<num>" (on 2.2 kernels with
"Unix98 PTY" support, which 6.0 ships with). Not much of a
bug, but somewhat lame.
A patch for this can be found at:
if you're so inclined to fix it...
Could you reply to this message with patch attached? I can't seem
to access the URL.
