Description Thornton Prime 2000-06-30 12:02:01 EDT
Attempt to do an install as a user over the network (ftp) causes a core
dump. I can do the install fine over the network as root, and can download
the file as a user and install from the local filesystem, just not as a
user over the network.

Here the tail of an strace:

strace rpm -Uvh
ftp://xenakis/cdrom/redhat-7.0b2-pt/SRPMS/postfix-20000531-1.src.rpm

Comment 1 Jeff Johnson 2000-07-22 11:49:40 EDT
Can you try  to reproduce the problem with (at least) the beta4 glibc-2.1.91-15
and
rpm-4.0-0.56 packages? Thanks ...
Comment 2 Thornton Prime 2000-07-24 14:14:12 EDT
Looks fixed in beta4 (glibc 2.1.91-16, rpm 4.0-0.56).

Thanks.
