#18 closed enhancement (fixed)

read() on /dev/kmem may fail, needs workaround

Reported by: rainer Owned by: rainer
Priority: major Milestone: 2.2.1
Component: main Version: 2.2.0
Keywords: Cc:


On recent kernels, read() on /dev/kmem may fail, although mmap() will succeed. On older kernels, using mmap() may result in problems. The solution would be to try read() first, and fallback on mmap() if read() fails.
