Description W. Michael Petullo 2004-08-07 19:58:28 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux ppc; en-US; rv:1.7)

Description of problem:
Genromfs does not execute properly on my PowerPC-based system.  The
getopt function returns an int.  However, in genromfs.c the value
returned by getopt is assigned to a variable of type char.

Changing "char c;" to "int c;" fixes things.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
genromfs-0.3-17

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
Try to run genromfs and notice that it does not execute properly. 
Further inspection determines that the problem is in genromfs's option
parsing code.
