bcfg2 hangs waiting for defunct init script

Reported by: Owned by: desai
Priority: minor Milestone: Bcfg2 1.2.0 Release
Component: bcfg2-client Version: 1.0
Keywords: Cc:


We have an init script for Osiris ( that, when run by bcfg2, goes defunct, which hangs bcfg2 until we do a Ctrl-C. I have attached the init script we are using, since it likely has some local modifications.

We are using bcfg2 1.0.1 and Osiris 4.2.3.

It appears that this is _not_ a bug with bcfg2, but something with the way osirisd handles stdout and stderr. I've replicated the issue with Python and Perl, completely separate from bcfg2.

As rare as it is, it'd be nice if bcfg2 could handle this sort of thing, but I'm betting there's not much Python can do if an external program misbehaves like this -- at least, not trivially. This is safe to close as notabug. (I would if I could figure out how....)
