Except where do you get the program timelimit from? I do not have it
anywhere on Mandriva (contrib or main or...)
Description: Limit the absolute execution time of a process
Details: timelimit executes a command and terminates the spawned
process after a given time with a given signal. A
'warning' signal is sent first, then, after a timeout, a
'kill' signal, similar to the way init(8) operates on
