Hi. I'm having a problem with "w" "who" and rxvt. If I fire up xterm as a
login shell, the login shows up in w who and finger. However, if I run rxvt
as a login shell, it doesn't report the login with w who and finger.
Now, i've gotten and compiled rxvt-2.16 and 2.18b2. I have made sure that
I set USE_UTMP in the compile options. I have chowned it root.bin and
chmoded it u+s. However, it still doesn't work.
I also tried chowning it root.root. That didn't work either.
v2.16 makes you pick SYSV style utmp or BSD style utmp. I've tried it
Also, looking at the strace output it seems like it's opening and writting
to utmp, but it's not showing up.
I'm using kernel 2.0.3, libc 5.0.9. Gcc 2.7.0.
