Comment 1 Rahul Sundaram 2006-02-20 06:27:53 EST

These bugs are being closed since a large number of updates have been released
after the FC5 test1 and test2 releases. Kindly update your system by running yum
update as root user or try out the third and final test version of FC5 being
released in a short while and verify if the bugs are still present on the system
.Reopen or file new bug reports as appropriate after confirming the presence of
this issue. Thanks
Comment 2 Matěj Cepl 2007-01-15 04:00:22 EST
Reporter, could you please confirm that this bug exists even in the current
Fedora Core 6 file-roller? If yes, could you provide some example archive, which
leads to segfault please?
Comment 3 Matthew Miller 2007-04-06 15:09:08 EDT
Fedora Core 5 and Fedora Core 6 are, as we're sure you've noticed, no longer
test releases. We're cleaning up the bug database and making sure important bug
reports filed against these test releases don't get lost. It would be helpful if
you could test this issue with a released version of Fedora or with the latest
development / test release. Thanks for your help and for your patience.

[This is a bulk message for all open FC5/FC6 test release bugs. I'm adding
myself to the CC list for each bug, so I'll see any comments you make after this
and do my best to make sure every issue gets proper attention.]
Comment 4 Ricky Ng-Adam 2007-04-28 13:11:02 EDT
Seems to work fine in FC7 test 4
