People log out but still show up in who (Old Sco Unix)

This information is logged in /etc/utmp and /etc/utmpx. In 5.0.4, this information is cleared when the system reboots. For earlier releases, edit /etc/bcheckrc as follows. You will see the first of the following three lines already there; add the other two below it.



/bin/su bin -c "/etc/devnm / 2>/dev/null" | /etc/setmnt
[ -w /etc/utmp ] && > /etc/utmp
[ -w /etc/utmpx ] && > /etc/utmpx
 

Also, "cwtmp" ftp://ftp.armory.com/pub/scobins/cwtmp is a freely available utility that clears stale logins.

Also available for Linux: ftp://ftp.armory.com/pub/linux/cwtmp

Anyone who slaps a 'this page is best viewed with Browser X' label on a Web page appears to be yearning for the bad old days, before the Web, when you had very little chance of reading a document written on another computer, another word processor, or another network. (Tim Berners-Lee)
