Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 157381
Segmentation fault on DEL
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:05 EST
Description of problem:
Type 'info date' and hit DEL key twice. On the second hit consistently:
"Moving to `Prev's last menu item.Segmentation fault"
This happens both on x86_64 and i386. Neither old info-4.1-1 nor
info-4.8-4 from rawhide seems to be afflicted by this disease.
Interestingly enough using 'p' key instead of DEL does not have this
effect. Type 'info date', 'u', and now after a longer series of 'p'
one gets to "No `Prev' pointer for this node" message and no crash.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Same as bug #147000. Maybe this needs a Fedora update.
Does this fix the problem for you?
> Does this fix the problem for you?
Yes, indeed, it does. I tried other key sequences, some of them rather long,
and so far I did not find anything which would cause segfault. Not surprising
as this is not 4.7 anymore. Not that I am attached to a specific version. :-)
Thanks for confirmation, texinfo-4.8-2.2 was released for FC3 in October 2005.
