2.2.19 errata: iBCS problem due to patch for strlen_user
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:32:47 EDT
In the errata kernel 2.2.19 there is a new patch for iBCS, linux-2.2.19-
ibcs.patch, to work-around the strlen_user problem.
I have an application, that works throught iBCS, that stopped working with
the 2.2.19 kernel due to this patch.
I get an error about "The TERM variable is not set. Set it and try again",
even if the TERM variable is defined.
To solve this, I reverted the above mentioned patch and applied the one
I'm not a programmer and cannot tell if it does the right thing, what I
know is that my app is working again now :-)
I'll add this patch to our 2.2.19 tree so that it will be included if/when
we put out a new 2.2.19 kernel.
This is corrected in latest 2.2.19 errata
