Child process signalled - termsig 12

Child process signalled - termsig 12

Post by Leslie Griffiths (Gri » Fri, 05 Jun 1992 16:57:59



I have a daemon which forks a child process to tar a large number of files. The
child process is forked and exec'd ok, but after running for a short time bombs
out.

        The return value from tar is 4

        The w_termsig is 12 ("bad argument to system call")

Any ideas why such a signal would arise within the exec'd tar process?

Cheers
