Perhaps there's a change that I'm unaware of, or my system's misconfigured,
but after I installed rsh-server-0.16-3.i386.rpm, I find that rsh still
works, but in.rshd on the remote system fails to exit. The child process
of in.rshd (the executed command) stays around in unkillable sleep, untill
I killall in.rshd.
When I try "rsh dunwoody1 date", I see the following in dunwoody1's
Jan 9 13:00:10 dunwoody1 in.rshd: connect from
The "date" command executes successfully, then a "ps" on dunwoody1 shows:
3290 S 0.3 0.6 in.rshd -h
3291 Z 0.4 0.0 [date <defunct>]
I'm running all the latest RawHide rpm's as of 2000/01/09 1200PST,
including kernel-2.2.14-1.1.0. If you can't reproduce this (I hope you
can), I'd be happy to provide more details.
I've reproduced this problem, will have a fix shortly. Use the rsh-0.10
package from 6.1 if you need a fix Right Now.
Fixed in rsh-0.16-4. Thanks for noticing.
