Description Thomas Zehetbauer 1999-04-10 11:01:32 UTC
klogd uses lseek on /dev/kmem. In case of an error this
would return (off_t)-1 but the return value is considered an
error if <0 which is inaccurate when large numbers are
treated as a signed int.

Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 1999-04-12 14:46:59 UTC
try upgrading to a later syslogd (such as 1.3.31-*, from
the errata). Does this solve the problem?

Comment 2 Thomas Zehetbauer 1999-05-03 18:34:59 UTC
Upgrading to the latest available sysklogd solved this problem.
Unfortunately this update was not officially announced and is not in
the "new-kernel" updates directory.

Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 1999-05-04 14:49:59 UTC
The sysklogd update is actually in the regular 5.2 errata,
IIRC. We'll probably throw a link from one to the other.
