Why does realbasic runtime startup execute ldconfig with:

/bin/bash -c /sbin/ldconfig -p

On ubuntu at least, this leaves a zombie.

/sbin/ldconfig.real -p is executed immediately afterwards
without the /bin/bash and doesn't create the zombie.

cheers

We use this list to determine what features your host system supports (and a way to resolve external functions), the fact that it leaves a zombie process around is a bug.

No worries about bugs, we all have them, but why not fix it?
Has it already been fixed and will it be in a future version?

I think you should remove the "/bin/bash -c" that proceeds the "ldconfig -p".

cheers, Joe

Unless you report it, it probably won't be fixed. William's comment was, "yup, that's a bug", not "we already know about that bug".
