Description redhat-bugzilla 1999-08-26 14:44:38 EDT
login(1) appears to be broken. It kills its parent process
(and its parent's parent process) when executed.
Comment 1 Jeff Johnson 1999-08-26 14:54:59 EDT
Making this work is not worth the effort.
Comment 2 redhat-bugzilla 1999-08-26 14:59:59 EDT
If you're not going to fix the program, then at least fix
the man page.
Comment 3 Jeff Johnson 1999-08-26 16:01:59 EDT
Send a patch to the maintainer of util-linux.
Comment 4 redhat-bugzilla 1999-08-26 16:02:59 EDT
If you're not going to fix the program, then at least fix
the man page.
