CONFIG_BSD_PROCESS_ACCT is not set in kernel 2.6.22-14-sparc64-smp

Bug Description

Binary package hint: linux-image-2.6.22-14-sparc64-smp

Just after installing acct package so I could have some accounting I realized that no info was being logged in /var/log/account/pacct.

Then, I tried to enable acctounting manually and I found this:

$ sudo /usr/sbin/accton /var/log/account/pacct
Turning on process accounting, file set to '/var/log/account/pacct'.
accton: Function not implemented

Finally, I confirmed that accounting was not compiled in the kernel:

$ cat /boot/config-2.6.22-14-sparc64-smp | grep -i acct

Why is it so?

Hi Alex,

It looks like this is not set for the sparc kernel config in Hardy either. I'm reasigning to the kernel team. Thanks.

I'm opened a new task against the actively developed kernel. However, I'm closing the report against linux-source-2.6.22 as it does not meet the criteria for a stable release update. You can learn more about the stable release update process at . Thanks!

So, if I understood correctly, it should be fixed on Hardy kernel but no update will be made to Gutsy. That's fine with me, acct is not so urgent for me and I will upgrade to Hardy, so there's no problem :)

Just let me know if you want me to try any sparc64 kernel.

Stefan, please enable this in the sparc config. Not sure why it was different than the other architectures.
