CTL-C fails to cause ping to terminate.
Last modified: 2015-03-04 20:09:17 EST
Description of Problem:
CTL-C or CTL-D fails to cause ping to terminate.
Happens every time
Steps to Reproduce:
1. as a regular user: ping <another host>
Continuous pings, which cannot be interrupted by CTL-C or CTL-D
Terminate gracefully with summary statistcs of number of pings.
iputils-20001110-4 (fairfax) has this problem. iputils-20001110-1 in
seawolf behaves properly.
This only occurred after I upgraded from 7.1 to fairfax. On a fresh install,
ping works as expected.
Did you only update iptuils to the fairfax version or did you make an update
I can't reproduce this bug on my completely updated 7.1 machine, thats why i ask.
Also, could you try to interrupt other programs from the shell you've been using
as it might not be strictly a iputils (ping) bug but maybe a shell missing job
control or with wrong tty settings.
An output of stty -a and rpm -q bash would be good as well.
Read ya, Phil
Derek, we need to get the data so we can tell if this is a SHOULD-FIX or not.
Can replicate in the test lab, so closing this out.
