Description Tim Waugh 2000-01-19 10:02:45 UTC
This has been around for a while I think.

I got this message while shutting down (at 'killall').

Comment 1 Jeff Johnson 2000-01-19 15:01:59 UTC
The kernel message comes and goes, so it's a bit hard to track this down.
The message is more of a problem than what it identifies :-)

Comment 2 Tim Waugh 2000-01-19 15:32:59 UTC
Perhaps a kernel modification to send SIGSEGV to the current process would help get a core?

Comment 3 Jeff Johnson 2000-01-19 15:44:59 UTC
The problem is the kernel error message rather than the running daemon,
as the default fix up works just fine. Adding weird signal behavior to cure
a non-existent problem indicated by an anal retentive error message is
not the right thing to do.

Comment 4 Phil Knirsch 2001-06-06 13:05:27 UTC
Tim, is this bug still valid or did it get fixed by RH 7?

If it has vanished i'd close it with fixed in current release.

Read ya, Phil

Comment 5 Tim Waugh 2001-06-06 13:51:08 UTC
I have no idea.  Sorry.

Comment 6 Phil Knirsch 2001-06-15 16:59:42 UTC
I'm changing it to WORKSFORME now as i've not seen the error message on my 7.2
machine anymore... Probably has been fixed with the new glibc anyway

Read ya, Phil
