Description d.binderman 2003-11-29 06:21:00 EST
Description of problem:
I just tried to compile package rdist-6.1.5-30.1 from Fedora.

The compiler said


expand.c(291): remark #592: variable "stb" is used before its value is set

The source code is

        struct stat stb;

	/* more code */
        if (!ISDIR(stb.st_mode)) {

Suggest initialise stb before use.

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

OK, bug is only in the old rdist code. Fixed nonetheless, rawhide
package rdist-6.1.5-31 and later.

Read ya, Phil
