[Bug 267464] periodic 310.accounting enables accounting even if it is disabled in rc.conf

https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=267464 --- Comment #3 from John Grafton <email@example.com> --- Ignore the last patch, it's too hacky. Grepping for the system process is problematic due to the possibility of a process other than accounting returning true for the grep. This patch uses the kern.acct_configured sysctl to determine if accounting is active instead. diff --git a/usr.sbin/periodic/etc/daily/310.accounting b/usr.sbin/periodic/etc/daily/310.accounting index b0dd786447eb..8eeed16f0516 100755 --- a/usr.sbin/periodic/etc/daily/310.accounting +++ b/usr.sbin/periodic/etc/daily/310.accounting @@ -18,6 +18,11 @@ case "$daily_accounting_enable" in echo '$daily_accounting_enable is set but /var/account/acct' \ "doesn't exist" rc=2 + elif [ $(sysctl -n kern.acct_configured) -eq 0 ] + then + echo '$daily_accounting_enable is set but' \ + 'process accounting is not active' + rc=2 elif [ -z "$daily_accounting_save" ] then echo '$daily_accounting_enable is set but ' \ -- You are receiving this mail because: You are the assignee for the bug.
