Description Leszek Matok 2004-04-22 14:34:38 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4) Gecko/20030701

Description of problem:
httpd-2.0.49-2 from Fedora/development segfaults when using pcre-3.4
(from some older RH system, worked fine with my previous
httpd-2.0.45-something). Upgrading to pcre-4.5 solved the problem
instantly, so all we have to do is require newer pcre.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install httpd-2.0.49-2 and php-4.3.4-11 using pcre-3.4-* (I don't
remember the exact version, sorry)
2. Try to run phpBB2 or TWIG (it seems to be related to php or mysql,
however, other php+mysql sites didn't brake)
3. httpd process serving the request will crash

Thanks for the report.  I'll add a Conflicts: pcre < 4.0.
