Description Joe Krahn 2009-10-06 16:52:06 EDT
Description of problem:
The pbs_mom service script produces an error because the 'kill' command is using the shell internal command, which apparently does not allow the SIG prefix, and SIGHUP is rejected as invalid.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. service pbs_mom reload

Actual results:
Re-reading TORQUE Mom config file: /etc/init.d/pbs_mom: line 99: kill: SIGHUP: invalid signal specification

Expected results:
Re-reading TORQUE Mom config file:                         [  OK  ]

Additional info:
The script just needs "kill -SIGHUP" changed to "kill -HUP". I'm surprised bash does not allow the SIG prefix the way /bin/kill does.
Comment 1 Bug Zapper 2010-04-28 06:43:23 EDT
This message is a reminder that Fedora 11 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 11.  It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.  At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 
'version' of '11'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 11's end of life.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 11 is end of life.  If you 
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this 
bug to the applicable version.  If you are unable to change the version, 
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events.  Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

The process we are following is described here: 
Comment 2 Fedora Admin XMLRPC Client 2010-06-07 13:04:52 EDT
This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database.  Reassigning to the new owner of this component.
Comment 3 Bug Zapper 2010-07-30 06:45:06 EDT
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 14 development cycle.
Changing version to '14'.

More information and reason for this action is here:
Comment 4 Steve Traylen 2010-10-14 15:09:59 EDT
Fedora 14, EPEL 4, 5 and 6 all have this fix in now, or rather they
are new enough that upstream has fixed it.
