Ctrl-C doesn't stop processes after updating to util-linux 2.11a anymore.

Comment 3 dunwoody 2001-05-06 16:46:36 EDT
I reported Bug 39237, which I have now reported as a duplicate of this bug.  The
problem is a regression
in /bin/login that happened sometime between util-linux-2.10s-8 and
util-linux-2.11a-4.  I noticed the problem when I updated from Rawhide 20010310
(including util-linux-2.10s-8) to Rawhide 20010503
(including util-linux-2.11a-4).   I was able to eliminate the problem on my
otherwise purely
Rawhide 20010503 system by changing the single file /bin/login back to the
20010310 version of
/bin/login from util-linux-2.10s-8.
Comment 4 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2001-05-07 12:20:55 EDT
Fixed in 2.11b-1
Comment 5 Bill Crawford 2001-05-08 13:11:05 EDT
Is there any chance you could make this fix available from people.redhat.com or
somewhere?  It breaks more than just ^C, anything using /dev/tty is broken e.g.
"vlock -a" currently doesn't work.  I rely on this to securely lock my
workstation here (xlock has some bugs, I don't like xscreensaver).

Comment 9 dunwoody 2001-07-06 11:18:35 EDT
I just updated to Rawhide 20010701, including util-linux-2.11f-1, and this
problem seems to still
exist in 2.11f-1.
Comment 10 Bill Crawford 2001-07-20 10:19:21 EDT
Yes, this seems to have b0rken again.  It's not working for me in
rawhide-release-20010713 either.
Comment 11 Wagner T. Correa 2001-10-25 03:33:56 EDT
It seems that this problem reappeared in util-linux-2.11f-11.7.1.
It's not always reproducible, though. Sometimes Ctrl-C works, sometimes it
Comment 12 Wagner T. Correa 2001-11-07 02:42:06 EST
The problem still appears in util-linux-2.11f-12 once in a while.
Comment 13 Need Real Name 2001-11-28 20:29:41 EST
I reliably reproduce "bash: no job control in this shell" using RedHat 7.2
with util-linux-2.11f-12.  Every time I telnet from an identically configured
machine to the target machine as a regular user, then "su", I see:
  bash: no job control in this shell
Comment 14 Bill Crawford 2001-11-29 05:20:05 EST
Sounds like a race condition?

Anyway, I've seen a recurrence of the problem, symptom is dropping right back to
the login prompt when I log out of GNOME.  This was with the latest Raw Hide
