    Hi,
    I noticed today that I have heaps (and I means HEAPS) of entries like this in the Perfect Server Ubuntu 7.10' file /var/log/syslog
    Code:

    Each 'ttyx'process appears to come to a grinding halt
    This goes on all the time, while the server is running. Every ~10 secods set of new tty processes is spawned.. Rebooting does not eliminate the problem.

    First, is 'tty 'apache2?
    If so, what would cause each process to failoever and restart every 10secs?

    Any input welcome.

    Kind Regards

    Hi,

    please try:

    sudo rm /etc/event.d/tty[23456] (you should backup the folder before you delete something)

    Afterwards reboot the system.

    Best regards,

    Olli

    Solved - but what was that?

    Hi,

    thanks for that - it sure fixed it.

    But was that what I was looking at? and there seem to be 6 rc[1-6] entries in event.d as well. What is that stuff? Any clues?

    Thanks
