Bug#141500: dpkg: start-stop-daemon, new glibc nice(2) patch
I have already published on debian-dpkg a patch that correct
the usage of nice() .
This is not only a glibc problem, it also a bad usage of a broken function
(nice()) in start-stop-daemon.
I wrote a piece of code that is fully compliant with modern standart
(use set/getpriority() instead of nice() if available). With it,
start-stop-daemon --nicelevel option will work on almost all Unix98, X/open,
System V, BSD compatible systems (i hope ;)
I'm not a debian developper, i hope you don't care of that.
PS: i already know there's a fix in the CVS, i can repost my patch
diff'ed against the CVS.
PS2: i really want my patch to be included in future release,
can you really flame me for that ?
