Description Oskari Saarenmaa 2003-10-17 15:46:35 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.5)
Gecko/20031007 Firebird/0.7

Description of problem:
The current rawhide version of PHP (inside Apache) crashes randomly when GD
functions are used.  Apparently this happens because Rawhide's PHP is linked
against external GD library that is not thread safe and it causes random memory
corruption.  Using the gd library that is bundled with PHP fixes the problem.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install gd, httpd, and php
2. Make a simple script using gd
3. Load a few pages and see it crash

Should be fixed in php-4.3.3-6.
Comment 2 Joe Orton 2003-12-01 06:10:36 EST
Thanks a lot for tracking that down: do you have more information on
why it crashes?
Comment 3 Oskari Saarenmaa 2003-12-02 08:32:46 EST
I haven't had time to check what exactly is wrong with the GD in
Rawhide and Fedora, but I have verified that the problem is fixed by
php-4.3.3-6 and php-4.3.4-1.1
