Prince of Songkla University
System: NetBSD jade.coe.psu.ac.th 3.99.15 NetBSD 3.99.15 (GENERIC-1.696-20060125) #8: Wed Jan 25 04:59:39 ICT 2006 email@example.com:/usr/obj/current/kernels/JADE_ASUS i386
When compiled (or installed, or whatever, this is not important)
net/wistumbler says ...
Please take care not to remove the card for the interface you are watching
with wistumbler(1) -- the process will go into a busy loop and consume all
available CPU time. It can be killed without problems, though.
This was added in response to a PR I filed in 2003. At the
time I also contacted the author of wistumbler. The bug was
fixed a day or so later (if that long), and the fixed version
was in pkgsrc within a week I think...
That message has been there for the past 30 months or so...
(needlessly). (And I have been neglecting to mention it for
all of that time, apologies.)
(followed by cvs commit or whatever...)
