Package: busybox
Version: 1:1.9.2-1
Severity: important
Tags: d-i

In Debian Installer we're seeing a regression in pidof. For certain
processes it no longer returns the PID.

# ps ax | grep [d]ebian-installer
  452 root       1408 S   /bin/sh /sbin/debian-installer
 5594 root       1964 S   /bin/sh /sbin/debian-installer /bin/network-console-m
 5641 root       1964 S   /bin/sh /sbin/debian-installer /bin/network-console-m
# pidof debian-installer

With busybox 1.3.x the pidof command would return the PIDs:
# pidof debian-installer
452 5594 5641

The first of these processes is started from /etc/inittab:
::respawn:/bin/cttyhack /sbin/debian-installer

The second and third are started from an ssh connection to the system:
# cat /etc/passwd
# cat /bin/network-console
set -e
exec /sbin/debian-installer /bin/network-console-menu

Thanks for helping out with this! We've gained quite some backlog on busybox 
bugs that were mostly filed against an old version - I've been working on 
that a bit but more help is surely welcome.

Two notes I can make here:
- your tag command is ok but you need to Cc "control@bugs.debian.org" for such 
commands to be processed.
- if you can actually test against the version in Debian unstable, you could 
even close the bug directly rather than tagging it. I've tested it against 
current Debian busybox and 1:1.10.2-1 indeed seems to have it fixed aswell, 
so I'm closing the bug with this mail. Feel free to do so aswell in 
situations where that's appropriate.

In any case, if you have any information to add to a bug report that's of 
course always useful. Thanks!
