Description Matthew Miller 2004-02-10 16:56:00 UTC
The recent update to netpbm (bug #113842) makes it use the -t flag to
mktemp. (That's its whole point.) 

Unfortunately, that doesn't work on Red Hat Linux 9, because the
mktemp package is only 1.5-18, which doesn't have that flag. And I
couldn't find an update to a newer version.

Suggested fix -- update mktemp too. The package from Fedora Core 1
should work.

Comment 1 Phil Knirsch 2004-02-10 17:07:26 UTC
We'll be doing a RHBA for mktemp and a new RHBA for netpbm, too which
will require the new mktemp.

Will close this bug when the erratas have been released.


Read ya, Phil

Comment 2 Matthew Miller 2004-02-10 17:08:40 UTC
Great, thanks. Can you give me a rough idea on timeframe? (Hours,
days, weeks?)

Comment 3 Phil Knirsch 2004-02-11 15:21:29 UTC
A release date isn't clear yet, but installing the mktemp from FC1 or
FC2 should work, too, until the errata has been released.

Rough time estimate is probably a few weeks at maximum.

Read ya, Phil

Not to be a pain, but is this going to happen before the RHL9 EOL?
'Cause it really ought to.

Comment 5 Jindrich Novy 2004-09-02 12:46:21 UTC
mktemp -t is used only in ppmquantall, ppmshadow, pnmmargin and
anytopnm. I tested netpbm-10.24 (rawhide) anytopnm and it works fine
for me on FC2. Hence it seems like RH9 issue which is fixed in FC.
