Description si 1999-04-24 16:49:59 UTC
The accounting utilities are wrongly compiled with the
acct struct found from sys/acct.h instead of the one in
linux/acct.h, which causes the it to have the wrong size.
The information returned by, for example the 'lastcomm'
command is garbled.

Comment 1 Preston Brown 1999-08-27 19:16:59 UTC
Cristian, fix this.

Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 1999-08-31 16:02:59 UTC
this is fixed in the latest psacct RPMs in Raw Hide, IIRC.
