Hi!

I found my system hanging again so I looked around in my crontab and so on
and found the following.

As somebody else already said its seccheck skript. It is called by the
crontab with the daily parameter and starts a script called
/usr/lib/secchk/security-daily.sh The whole thing is starting to get a
problem when it tries to execute the csh logon script (/etc/csh.cshrc). I
didn't find out why but if you comment the following line out in the
csh.cshrc it works.

setenv MANPATH "`(unsetenv MANPATH; manpath -q)`"

it line 19 or so. This is just a workaround the only thing that happens is
that the skript doesn`t stop anymore. but i have the feeling that
something is missing now in the whole thing.

anyway after changing the skript /usr/lib/secchk/security-daily.sh could
be called from the command line. Tomorow I tell you if it works with
cron to.

greetings and good night
Gregor
