Description Derek Tattersall 2001-06-30 12:07:31 EDT
Description of Problem:
CTL-C or CTL-D fails to cause ping to terminate.

How Reproducible:
Happens every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. as a regular user: ping <another host>

Actual Results:
Continuous pings, which cannot be interrupted by CTL-C or CTL-D

Expected Results:
Terminate gracefully with summary statistcs of number of pings.

Additional Information:
iputils-20001110-4 (fairfax) has this problem.  iputils-20001110-1 in
seawolf behaves properly.
Comment 1 Derek Tattersall 2001-06-30 12:50:02 EDT
This only occurred after I upgraded from 7.1 to fairfax.  On a fresh install,
ping works as expected.
Comment 2 Phil Knirsch 2001-07-02 05:45:19 EDT
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. 
Comment 4 Jay Turner 2002-02-13 14:44:26 EST
Can replicate in the test lab, so closing this out.
