The output of the program
w
and
who

is incorrect on my Gentoo Linux computer.

The output produced are:

frank@babe frank $ w
11:20:21 up 3:54, 0 users, load average: 0.79, 0.25, 0.08
USER TTY FROM LOGIN@ IDLE JCPU PCPU WHAT
frank@babe frank $ who
frank@babe frank $ who -a
Feb 5 07:26 8 id=si term=0 exit=0
system boot Feb 5 07:26

LOGIN tty6 Feb 5 07:26 1562 id=c6
Feb 5 07:26 1563 id=x term=0 exit=0
frank@babe frank $ uname -a
Linux babe 2.4.19-gentoo-r10 #1 Tue Feb 4 09:04:25 NZDT 2003 i686 AMD Athlon(tm) XP 1600+ AuthenticAMD GNU/Linux
frank@babe frank $ gcc -v
Reading specs from /usr/lib/gcc-lib/i686-pc-linux-gnu/2.95.3/specs
gcc version 2.95.3 20010315 (release)

My C/C++ optimization flags are:
CFLAGS="-march=i686 -O -fomit-frame-pointer -pipe"

My Gentoo is bsed on the version 1.2 ISO built from stage 3

I emerged to the latest patches versions, so why is the output incorrect ?

In particular the command
w
should NOT show 0 users are logged in.

I value stability and my system has been rock stable but this output appears to be totally incorrect....coming from FreeBSD this worries me a bit.
I like Gentoo but this is troublesome...any suggestions or further questions ??

Output from w on mine shows:
Code:

 16:03:38  up 5 days,  4:08,  1 user,  load average: 0.18, 0.12, 0.35
USER     TTY      FROM              LOGIN@   IDLE   JCPU   PCPU  WHAT
aja      :0       -                Thu11am   ?     0.00s  0.09s  -:0           


Which seems correct. Also correct on 2 other boxes here.

Suspect it is 'gentoo on your box' not 'gentoo'

/edit:

If you login on another virt. terminal (i.e be logged in more than once) does it show up?

This has been asked several times, though I don't know if an answer has been given. Will add a link as soon as I find the thread.

who command doesn't show all users
