Description ahm 1999-06-30 14:41:34 UTC
for uptimes greater than 365 days, rup shows the wrong
number of days - apparently (days modulo 365).
However, "rup -t" sorts correctly, so this is probably
just a display bug. (The rup in RH6.0 has the problem too)

This issue has been forwarded to a developer for further action.

Comment 2 Jeff Johnson 1999-08-30 22:43:59 UTC
The program rup in netkit-rusers-0.15 reports days using the tm_yday
field returned by gmtime(3) using as input the delta of now - boottime
of the responding host. I dunno how to improve this algorithm without
opening up a lot of snarly issues involving local/remote time
synchronization and the gain is not worth the effort.
