If Samba/utmp doesn't interest you, you may delete this message.
But if it does, please read it and pursue it.
I have now cobbled together a patch to improve the utmp handling (added in
the various "pre" versions of 2.0.7). Many people have contributed
bugfixes and ideas: the good bits of the patch are theirs, the bad bits
should be blamed on me.
The patch is for 2.0.7pre3 and ONLY for 2.0.7pre3 . It will not install
for any other version. (This is new functionality, the code has rapidly
evolved in the "pre<n>" series (a moving target), and the intention is to
get these tidyings into the official 2.0.7 release.)
Notes for the patch are at:
and the patch itself is at:
The ".1" refers to this being the first version of the patch. Others
I hope it incorporates all the bugfixes, and almost all the major
functional corrections hitherto spotted. (I know of one idea not yet
incorporated; this is mentioned in the notes.)
Please would the utmp enthusiasts try it and report any problems. Thanks.
