Description Daniel Berrange 2008-04-02 15:49:51 EDT
Description of problem:
ftrace does not appear to work at all - it spews an error messages to stderr and
then sits around doing nothing

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. ftrace ls
Actual results:
#  ftrace -sys= ls
execvp: No such file or directory
<hang forver...>

Expected results:
A file listing & trace output

Additional info:
Comment 1 Daniel Berrange 2008-04-02 15:57:17 EDT
It appears that ftrace is failing to honour the $PATH, since giving an explicit
path works

# ftrace /bin/ls
5753.5753 attached /bin/ls
Comment 2 Mark Wielaard 2008-04-02 16:00:33 EDT
This is most likely upstream bug
http://sourceware.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=6003 "ftrace does not follow
$PATH". for now try supplying the full path to the executable /bin/ls
Comment 3 Andrew Cagney 2008-04-07 13:55:37 EDT
I've fixed this.
