can't run as root with netbsd-5
I just tried upgrading one of my machines to netbsd-5. The process seemed to
go ok on a test machine, and when I tried it on another machine it started
out ok, but now I can't run things as root. Specifically:
I copied a netbsd 5 RC2 generic kernel and rebooted. (previously running
After rebooting, I was able to login and run stuff as root just fine.
I was going to let it run for a bit and then upgrade userland, but
now when I attempted to su to root to do so I get errors like:
su: /bin/ksh: Resource temporarily unavailable
I can use sudo to switch to other users, and running most things seems
to be fine, but actually executing stuff as root from a setuid process
fails. Things that are already running, like apache, seem to be ok, and
the root owned apache process can fire up additional www owned processes.
I would just reboot the machine, but I don't currently have easy
physical access to it.
Does anyone have any suggestions?
