Description Sergey Tikhonov 2005-01-27 20:37:29 UTC
Description of problem:
The problem occured while trying to use "yum" (actually some rpm
library for python) on linux/alpha.
The problem is that old_globfree function for Alpha didn't copied all
necessary fields to new glob structure and called new "globfree"
function with garbage in "gl_offs" field.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
glibc-2.3.4-3.fc3
