trying to install afbackup on a suse 9.0 i get the following:
After the question:
Should we add an entry to /etc/services for this
Your choice (Yes/No/port/servicename) [Yes]: Yes
An entry for this service is necessary in the system
Here the machine hangs and will not proceed installation.
Checking ps ax on second console I have followinng entries atm:
0:08 /bin/sh ./Install
0:00 /bin/grep -E ^[ ?]*afbackup([ ?].*)?$
Please let me know whats wrong maybe.
This phenomenon is not really reasonable. There must
be another egrep with /etc/services as argument.
If in this process tree (run pstree -plan <egrep-pid> )
there is no other egrep or probably a defunct process,
you are probably facing a bit older linux kernel problem, where
a subprocess exits and it's parent is not getting aware
of it. when you run strace -p <pid-of-egrep> you see
probably a read(0, ... system call being in progress.
There must be a pipe to another process (check using
lsof -p <pid-of-egrep> and see the file descriptor 0 for
some hex-code specifying the pipe and run lsof|grep <hex-code>
to find the other process, that is trying to write to this
pipe. This might probably help.
