Description Matt Wilson 2002-07-17 15:02:38 EDT
nice(3) is supposed to return the new nice value.  nice(3) in Advanced Server
does not.
Comment 1 Jakub Jelinek 2002-07-18 04:32:17 EDT
Do we really want that fix for 2.1AS though? It was breaking VMWare, made bogus
errors in XFree86 logs etc.
Comment 2 Jakub Jelinek 2002-07-26 11:40:33 EDT
Fixed in glibc-2.2.4-27.1.
Comment 3 Matt Wilson 2002-12-13 23:26:17 EST
the LSB added language to allow both behaviors, so we can make nice() do the old
thing for AS 2.1.
