Description Sergey Tikhonov 2005-01-27 15:37:29 EST
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.
