Description Andy Dustman 2004-10-21 07:20:20 UTC
"sudosh is a pty filter that allows the use of a root shell in conjunction with sudo. Sudosh is basically a VCR and will record root shell sessions and also has the capability to play back the sessions as they were originally recorded."

ebuild to be attached.

Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to work.

I get the following when running 'sudo sudosh':

getlogin() returned NULL.  I do not know who you are.  Stopping.
Comment 5 Andy Dustman 2004-12-20 08:52:25 UTC
It doesn't do that for me. Perhaps there is some dependency that's been overlooked. But then, I would expect the build to fail if that were the case.

       getlogin  returns a pointer to a string containing the name of the user
       logged in on the controlling terminal of the process, or a null pointer
       if  this  information  cannot  be determined.  The string is statically
       allocated and might be overwritten on subsequent calls to this function
       or to cuserid.

The man page for getlogin also seem to indicate that it reads the utmp file (/var/run/utmp on gentoo).

(this is an automated message based on filtering criteria that matched this bug)
'EBUILD' is in the KEYWORDS which should mean that there is a ebuild attached to
this bug.
This bug is assigned to maintainer-wanted which means that it is not in the main

Hello, The Gentoo Team would like to firstly thank you for your ebuild
submission. We also apologize for not being able to accommodate you in a timely
manner. There are simply too many new packages.

Allow me to use this opportunity to introduce you to Gentoo Sunrise. The sunrise
overlay[1] is a overlay for Gentoo which we allow trusted users to commit to and
all users can have ebuilds reviewed by Gentoo devs for entry into the overlay.
So, the sunrise team is suggesting that you look into this and submit your
ebuild to the overlay where even *you* can commit to. =)

Because this is a mass message, we are also asking you to be patient with us. We
anticipate a large number of requests in a short time. 

On behalf of the Gentoo Sunrise Team,
