nice(3) does not return POSIX compliant return value
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:06:51 EST
nice(3) is supposed to return the new nice value. nice(3) in Advanced Server
Do we really want that fix for 2.1AS though? It was breaking VMWare, made bogus
errors in XFree86 logs etc.
Fixed in glibc-2.2.4-27.1.
the LSB added language to allow both behaviors, so we can make nice() do the old
thing for AS 2.1.
