Description Pekka Savola 2000-04-15 20:49:27 EDT
(authconfig-3.0.3-1, other -3.0* also; authconfig-2.0-2 from RH61 works

Newer versions of authconfig seem to segfault on my heavily updated RH51


And a few lines from strace:

Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2000-04-17 10:49:59 EDT
Um, the versions of popt, authconfig, slang, etc. are all
recompiled against glibc2.0, correct? (just making sure...)
Comment 2 Pekka Savola 2000-04-17 12:07:59 EDT
Yes.  All of those have been rebuilt from SRPMs.
Comment 3 Nalin Dahyabhai 2000-05-30 15:18:59 EDT
The next message I get when I strace authconfig is an opening of a message
catalog file.  Which version of gettext do you have installed?
Comment 4 Pekka Savola 2000-05-31 11:27:33 EDT
I'm unable to test this anymore, since I updated to Redhat 6.2.

Gettext was almost certainly the distribution binary from Redhat 5.1

This is a test comment. Please disregard.
