Description Stephen Tweedie 2000-01-05 13:22:35 EST
initscripts greps for CPUs in /proc/stat incorrectly.  The file
/etc/rc.d/rc.local performs a

NUMPROC=`grep -cl "^cpu[0-9]+" /proc/stat`

which should probably be:

NUMPROC=`grep -c "cpu[0-9]" /proc/stat`

as otherwise you just get NUMPROC=0 unless you have >10 CPUs.
