Description Sam Steingold 2006-07-20 00:10:47 EDT
Description of problem:

libsigsegv 2.3 is known to be buggy, upgrade to 2.4
then rebuild the packages that rely in libsigsegv
notably clisp

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

2.3 ---> 2.4
Comment 1 Sam Steingold 2006-07-20 00:19:49 EDT
this is a critical issue: this broken libsigsegv prevents CLISP from catting
infinite recursion:
[1]> (defun f () (f))
[2]> (f)
Segmentation fault

with libsigsegv 2.4 the infinite recursion is caught.

* Thu Jul 20 2006 Rex Dieter <rexdieter[AT]users.sf.net> 2.4-1
