Description Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2002-05-09 12:05:49 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.

Patch 20.2 back the correct signals from 20.1
Comment 2 J. Nick Koston 2002-05-15 03:45:17 EDT
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/
Comment 3 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2002-05-15 11:25:08 EDT
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.

Comment 5 Mike A. Harris 2002-11-13 08:49:30 EST
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
