- When the telnetd daemon was used to log in to a server, the login utility failed to update the /var/run/utmp file properly. Consequently, the line used for a previous session in /var/run/utmp was not reused, thus growing the file unnecessarily. A patch has been provided to address this issue and the login utility now always updates /var/run/utmp as expected.
- The console login time-out value was set to 60 seconds. This could cause the login to time out during the name lookup process on systems with broken DNS (Domain Name Service). With this update, the timeout value has been prolonged to 180 seconds to allow the login process to complete name lookups under these circumstances.
- The "fdisk -l" and "sfdisk -l" commands returned confusing warnings for unpartitioned devices similar to the following:
Disk /dev/mapper/[volume name] doesn't contain a valid partition tableWith this update, the commands ignore unpartitioned devices and the problem no longer occurs.
- Previously, after the installation of the uuidd package, the uuidd daemon was not enabled by default. With this update, the underlying code has been modified and the uuidd daemon is enabled after installation as expected and can be started by the init script after reboot.
- Previously, the script command did not work correctly if called from the csh shell in the /etc/csh.login file. The child processes created by the script inherited the SIGTERM ignore property from csh and could not be terminated with the signal. With this update, the script resets the SIGTERM setting so that the shell is started with the default SIGTERM behavior and its children accept signals as expected.
