Hi, I would like to suggest that the issue of upper case of argv names and
policy thereof be continued on debian-policy only, because: (1) it's not
really an issue, especially in the throes of release... (2) the original
question (as far as I've read) has to do with an issue that is potentially
release-critical, the possibility that cron is calling something that dies
often enough that it runs out of processes and dies. With regard to the
upper-case thing: -please- either come to a consensus quickly or consider
dropping that part of the discussion until after release.
Now... the symptoms described (processes accumulating until no more processes
left and no one can do anything with the machine after that) would seem to
match the symptoms on a box we have with slink running on it. So, my question
is: has anyone else noticed these symptoms? I rebooted the machine in question
under my control, and I haven't noticed any /USR/BIN/CRON processes in the
Looking again... machine up 1 hour, no problems and no such processes.
I have noticed that the machine never lasts the night tho... fw that's w
Any one notice similar things?
