    Hello,

    Maybe it's a newbies question, but I not sure :

    When I run dmesg, I get a lot of this errors :

    application bug: whostmgrd(29098) has SIGCHLD set to SIG_IGN but calls wait().
    (see the NOTES section of 'man 2 wait'). Workaround activated.
    application bug: whostmgrd(4036) has SIGCHLD set to SIG_IGN but calls wait().
    (see the NOTES section of 'man 2 wait'). Workaround activated.
    application bug: whostmgrd(6334) has SIGCHLD set to SIG_IGN but calls wait().
    (see the NOTES section of 'man 2 wait'). Workaround activated.
    application bug: whostmgrd(13849) has SIGCHLD set to SIG_IGN but calls wait().
    (see the NOTES section of 'man 2 wait'). Workaround activated.

    Any idea?

    I'm using red hat 9.

    Thanks!

    I'm getting the same thing but for cpaneld

    Dec 21 03:11:25 matrix kernel: application bug: cpaneld(4769) has SIGCHLD set to SIG_IGN but calls wait().
    Dec 21 03:11:25 matrix kernel: (see the NOTES section of 'man 2 wait'). Workaround activated.

    I've seen all kinds of posts about this but no fix. Has anybody found a fix for this problem?

    This *shouldn't* affect anything, states cpanel support. Here's some info from the changelog:

    +-------------------------------------------------------------+
    Thu Jan 29 22:50:44 EST 2004
    8.7.0-EDGE_47
    ---------------------------------------------------------------
    fix another instance where
    cppop could generate an

    application bug: cppop(19163) has SIGCHLD set to SIG_IGN but calls wait().
    (see the NOTES section of 'man 2 wait'). Workaround activated.

    this is really annoying since we are going to be forced to call
    wait in some circumstances even when SIGCHLD is set to IGNORE
    because of broken kernels. The tradeoff is the error message which
    doesn't affect anything but makes people go crazy when they see it.
    However its better that we don't create zombie processes, so for
    compatibility between diffrent linux versions it might just be
    best to live with this warning message as it doesn't do anything
    but make people ask questions.
    ---------------------------------------------------------------


    +-------------------------------------------------------------+

    So it's not going to get fixed.

    Ah.. well that's good enough for me. I'm just having a problematic server and trying to track down any and everything I can to determine what the problem(s) are.

    If that's just a false positive, I can live with that.

    Thanks for that report.
