Description David Binderman 2005-09-30 14:07:49 EDT
Description of problem:

I just tried to compile Fedora development package rpm-4.4.2-5
with the new GNU C compiler version 4.0.2 and the compiler flag -Wall.

The compiler said

compress.c:442: warning: 'pid2' is used uninitialized in this function

The source code is

                waitpid(pid2, NULL, 0);

I agree with the compiler. Suggest initialise local variable "pid2"
before first use.

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

FWIW, this code is never traversed if HAVE_LIBZ is defined.

Fixed by upgrading to later version of file internal to (at least) rpm-4.4.5.
