Builtin signal names wrong in psmisc (killall)
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:38:02 EDT
The signal name-> number wrapping is wrong. I.e. doing a "killall -CONT foo"
will send SIGSTOP. Many others are wrong too...
psmisc-20.2-3 has a correct list for i386, but it should be autogenerated (it
might differ by arch). An errata should be strongly considered.
Created attachment 57364 [details]
Patch 20.2 back the correct signals from 20.1
This should be considered much more critical as SIGUSR1 will send SIGPWR. This
is really bad when mixed will 'killall -USR1 httpd' since apache will die
instead of do a graceful restart.
Patched RPMS here: http://diff.cpanel.net/pub/sysup/7.3/psmisc/
There already is a patch rpm in rawhide (built at the time of the report), so we
already have a patch for the case of i386.

This bug was fixed ages ago in released erratum for RHL 7.3, but the
report never closed. The package is: psmisc-20.2-3.73
Closing with resolution ERRATA
