 ps gives floating point exception
  I have recently upgraded from 1.2.13 to 1.3.59 and now ps -u gives me a
floating point exception error and core dumps.  Do I need to recompile
ps, or is there a fix for this?

In article <4fm5n4$...@news.service.uci.edu>

   Get procps-0.99 from sunsite or one of the mirrors, this will take
care of the problem.

this is because somewhere around 1.3.39 (i think) they changed the /proc
filesystem.  [or something like that]

the point is -- you need to d/l procps99 from sunsite or a mirror of
such.  You compile it and then you have a nifty ps that no longer crashes.

couple notes, tho:
        1)  it'll complain about a bunch of things not existing.  You
need to find where it #include <asm/string.h> (i think) and add, before
it, #include <linux/string.h> .  [i know directories are right, but it
may not be string. I cant remember right now and i seem to have deleeted
my source code copy.  :( ]
        2)  if you want w to showwhat people are doing you need to add a
line in one of the files that says something along the lines of
"setversion();"  [you may want someone else to tell you what that line is
really supposed to be, because i dont remember.]

I think those are the only standard errors...

good luck

  Get procps-0.99 from a sunsite mirror - /system/status/ps.
However, on a slightly different matter, I haven't been able to
successfully gunzip files that I've downloaded from most mirror
sites for a little while - I think the procps file is corrupted,
since I haven't been able to unzip it after at least 5 different
downloads, and several other files look like they're corrupted too
(although I haven't had the time to download them again). I have a
Pentium-150 with 16MB RAM and 14MB swap space using kernel 1.3.60
with no patches, libc 4.7.2 (I think) and 5.0.9 (haven't seen the
5.2.18 or newest libs on sunsite - where are they, 4.6.2???), gzip
1.2.4 with pentium optimization (the normal version didn't work
either), a 28.8 modem, and an 800M ext2 partition. (I might have
been pushing my luck there when I was downloading those files at
2700 cps, and trying to look at 1600x1200 JPEG pics, some of those
files I was downloading might have been garbled up, but on a
Pentium 150?????)

  I also have a few other questions.. is it possible to modify the
size of an ext2 partition without having to delete the current
one? (I'm just realizing that 28MB of total virtual memory just
won't work.) Perhaps if I defrag the disk, dd the first 500 or so
megs to a file on my windows 95 partition, re-partition, and dd
back from there? Suggestions?
