2.4 upgrade -> utmp changes?

2.4 upgrade -> utmp changes?

Post by Charlie Richm » Fri, 07 Apr 1995 04:00:00

I just upgraded a system from 2.3 to 2.4.  The primary application, ARC/INFO,
uses the flexlm license manager.  Prior to the upgrade, I could open as
many command tools as I wanted, and run my application in each of them.  Now,
each one consumes a license (of which I have only a limited number.)

It looks like the 2.4 system might be generating a utmp entry for each
command tool, where the 2.3 system generated only one.

One workaround is to use xterms with the -ut option, but that is limiting.

Why the change?  Can I do anything more effective to fix it?

Thanks one and all
