I am a writer passing time in my native northwest Georgia who has learned about life from restaurant kitchens, hospital shipping docks and my many, many mistakes. I hope to overcome my fear of heights and move to a house on the mountain where I can enjoy the view.

[davido]: ok, on my ubuntu system getlogin grabs from /proc/self/ loginuid (per strace)
[tye]: disable /proc and then see what it does?
[davido]: then it reads from /etc/passwd to decide who my uid is.
[davido]: sorry, typed that before you asked me to disable proc
[davido]: but you stumped me; don't know how to disable proc.
[tye]: I don't know if you can just dismount, but I thought so.
[davido]: yeah, umount -f isn't powerful enough.
