Description redhat-bugzilla 1999-08-26 18:44:38 UTC
login(1) appears to be broken. It kills its parent process
(and its parent's parent process) when executed.

Comment 1 Jeff Johnson 1999-08-26 18:54:59 UTC
Making this work is not worth the effort.

Comment 2 redhat-bugzilla 1999-08-26 18:59:59 UTC
If you're not going to fix the program, then at least fix
the man page.

Comment 3 Jeff Johnson 1999-08-26 20:01:59 UTC
Send a patch to the maintainer of util-linux.

Comment 4 redhat-bugzilla 1999-08-26 20:02:59 UTC
If you're not going to fix the program, then at least fix
the man page.
