Description Pytela, Zdenek 1999-08-26 13:55:24 UTC
Both finger and fingerd from new RH 6.0 packages
(finger-0.10-24) search for user mailboxes in /var/mail, not
in /var/spool/mail as it was on RH 5.2 (0.10-5). This occurs
in local use as well as in remote user@server use.
The only thing strace showed me was
stat("/var/mail/jmeno", 0xbffffb68)     = -1 ENOENT (No such
file or directory)
