Comment 1 Marcin Garski 2006-05-17 16:26:25 EDT
Upstream bug was without reply, but with new 0.7 release bug has been fixed. As
we can read in CHANGES:
"Fix SMBIOS anchor scan to work on more machines and don't crash when no anchor

Indeed mcelog don't SIGSEGV any more. I'll close this bug as UPSTREAM, but
please update mcelog, at least in devel tree.
Comment 2 Dave Jones 2006-05-17 16:51:30 EDT
heh, I just finished rebasing the package to 0.7
will be out in a day or two, for FC4 & FC5. Will be in devel tomorrow.
