Description Preston Brown 1999-03-19 14:06:34 UTC
Couple of things that I found in package testing:
  - package installs /usr/include/compface.h, but this file
    is not listed in the files section of the SPEC file;
    not sure whether this is really a problem, but thought
    that I would mention it
  - more importantly, running /usr/bin/faces causes a core
    dump; the program receives a SIGSEGV in what appears to
    be libc-start.c

Comment 1 Preston Brown 1999-03-22 16:45:59 UTC
compface.h is included in the -devel subpackage of faces.

The rest of this bug report is on hold pending whether or not we
remove faces, which hasn't been updated in 8 years, from the
distribution.

Comment 2 Erik Troan 1999-03-22 17:35:59 UTC
fixed in faces 1.6.1-15
