As the person who began the utmp/utmpx functionality, I'm curious to know
a little more detail about this problem. It suggests an OS that supports
the utmpx format (as well as the earlier and ubiquitous UNIX format utmp),
but whose utmpx fails to include a "ut_syslen" member.
When I drafted it, the utmpx-enabled OSes to which I had access were
Solaris 2.x and IRIX 6.x (admittedly a small sample size of 2), both of
which had "ut_syslen". It sounds as though yours doesn't, posing an
interesting build-time detection-problem.
Perhaps you could send me the "utmp.h" and "utmpx.h" files from your
Two related points for those preparing 2.0.7 for release:
1. Have you corrected the trivial declaration/definition discrepancy
of "utmp_yield()" that crept into the pre-2.0.7 release? (Reported
by a few poeple on this list.)
2. Have you examined the subsequent patch (on samba-technical) that, if
"utmp directory" is not specified, tries to ensure that the default
directory (i.e not "/") is used for utmp-like files?
