Description Stephen Gardner 2005-04-10 03:08:07 UTC
Description of problem:
sysreport uses the  catifexec  function to capture the output from the modinfo
command to a  modinfo  file. However  modinfo  is called multiple times from
within a for loop, once for each kernel module loaded, and as  catifexec  uses
">" the modinfo output file is overwritten with each successive repetition. The
sysreport modinfo file therefore only contains the information from the last
modinfo call (ie. the last module from the lsmod list it uses).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
+   sysreport-1.3.14-1   taken from RHEL4-U1-beta

Comment 1 Stephen Gardner 2005-04-10 03:11:18 UTC
Not entirely sure how the Summary got so big... very odd.

Comment 2 Ngo Than 2005-05-09 14:52:21 UTC
it's now fixed in CVS. The sysreport-1.3.15-1 will include this fix. I will build
it in RHEL4-U2 tree this week. Thanls for report
