I was trying to install sh-utils 1.16, and make check failed on 'nice'
Anyway, after some investigation, I think I have found a problem.
I wrote this program:
int getpriority(int which, int who);
void main ()
A = getpriority(PRIO_PROCESS, 0);
printf("PRIORITY = %d\n",A);
This should return 0, but it always seems to return -5. I have tried this
on a sun as well as linux 1.2.1. I have not yet tried the 2.1.x kernels,
because I was in the process of upgrading when I came across this.
