Description m.bizzarri 1999-12-29 14:55:49 UTC
In the current version of initscripts, in order to get the number of
processors in the system and to print that on the login, the rc.local
makes something like

grep -cl <some regular expression> <somefile>

this should be fixed as

egrep -c <the same reg. ex. > <the same file>

The egrep is used to count the number of processor, with the -c option.

I can be more precise if necessary.

This is fixed in the various errata initscripts.
