Does anyone use accounting with success? It works only somewhat for me.
I had complained about the missing acct support in the kernel a while ago,
without anyone picking the thread up. I then found a pointer to the new patch
on one of the c.o.linux.* newsgroup. I mailed Bruce about it, he included it
I applied the patch on my dial-in box at home onto the debian source 1.2.10
tree. accton is now supportted. But 'lastcomm' from the acct-alpha-5.7
binaries prints a hell lot of garbage on the screen and core dumps. The
'lastcomm' that comes with the acct-kernel patch from sunsite works.
Could we straighten this out between the source and acct maintainers?
I CC this to Ian Murdock, the acct-alpha maintainer. Bruce is already on this
for the source package.
