Hi :-)

i have rollout a new ssh pakage in our environment.

Apr 27 12:06:03 systemx sshd[869]: [ID 847] wtmp_write: problem
writing /var/adm/wtmp: No such file or directory

Solaris 8 has no /var/adm/wtmp, it use /var/adm/wtmpx

In the old package there was many of this messages

I compiled the new package with
--disable-wtmp \
--enable-wtmpx \

but sometimes one of this message are in the auth..
