From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.5; Windows NT 5.0)

"procinfo" on Red Hat 7.1 is version "procinfo-17-10". It works fine with 
the 2.2 kernel, but the 2.4 kernel changed the format of the disk 
statistics in "/proc/stat". As a result, "procinfo" on Red Hat 7.1 doesn't 
display disk statistics. 

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Red Hat 7.1 and "procinfo".
2. Type "procinfo -Dn10" in a terminal window.
3. Do some disk activity. You won't see any disk statistics.
4. Repeat the above steps on a 7.0 system with the 2.2 kernel and you will 
see disk statistics.

That's great -- it's fixed in 18-1! When can I expect a new RPM to be posted to 
the Red Hat updates/errata site?
Comment 3 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2001-05-03 09:59:37 EDT
Not at all. We release errata packages for critical bugs and security problems 

As the resolution ("RAWHIDE") indicates, you can get an updated package from 
our rawhide tree, 
ftp://ftp.redhat.com/pub/redhat/linux/rawhide/i386/RedHat/RPMS where it should 
be available later this week.

It is already available at http://www.linux-easy.com/rh-updates/.
