UTMP problem with Solaris 2.3 & tcsh.

Post by Dmitri B. Gofmekl » Sun, 12 Mar 1995 17:47:33



Hi,
I have a problem using tcsh in a shelltool or cmdtool. When I'm using the tcsh with
Open Windows, the each shelltool or cmdtool leaves after herself the many dead utmp
entries with 200 - 300 days of Idle but csh works good. Could someone tell me what I
made wrong?

My system info: Solaris 2.3, OpenWindows 3.3;

Thanks in advance,

PS.

 
 
 

1. utmp & wtmp problems in Solaris 2.3 - HELP!

Hi

After using a simple program to fix up utmp when there are phantom
users on the system, my utmp problems now seem to be minor.  However,
there seems to be a definite problem with logging users in wtmp.

Last tells me:

I *know* I have been on twice today, date tells me:

ship when the *logging* does not even work?  Does any blessed soul
have a patch that works?

Right now, it looks like xdm is screwing up, as all ftp/login sessions
seem to have been logged.  However, I can't confirm this.  For all I
know, it could be libc's routines that are screwed.

On an aside, does sun have a fix out that works for the utmp ghost-user
problem?
