Dear GAP Forum,
after upgrading to gap4r2, I'm having problems with the `Process'
function under Solaris. The following command (just like any other
call) returns -1, though it should return 0.
Process (DirectoryCurrent (), "/bin/true", \
InputTextFile ("/dev/null"), OutputTextFile ("/dev/null", true), );
The problem does not seem to exist under Linux.
I noticed the following in the announcement of bugfix 1:
5) A problem with `Exec' on Solaris2.5 (which caused a segmentation fault).
Applying this bugfix does not seem to cure the problem, but it might
be a related problem.
BTW, on the Solaris computer where I see the problem, I only have a
temporary account which is about to expire so I might not be able to
test any changes, but I hope you can reproduce the problem.
