Description Joshua Buysse 1999-04-08 03:03:04 UTC
Dump has been updated to dump-0.3-17

I'm willing to provide access to the host for RH staff to
test/fix bug.  I've seen this and other similar problems on
other hosts.

This is a consistent problem on one filesystem.  Output
from dump follows (some extra stuff from our local

Comment 1 Preston Brown 1999-04-08 14:44:59 UTC
Please try the dump which is currently in RawHide (dump 0.4b4).  I
believe that this bug has been fixed.

You will have to rebuild the src RPM on your system to get it linked
against glibc 2.0, not glibc 2.1.  Please report your results back

Comment 2 Preston Brown 1999-04-13 18:16:59 UTC
Sir, I need further input from you on this bug if we are going to be
able to solve it.

Comment 3 Joshua Buysse 1999-04-13 18:22:59 UTC
The code did fix the problem.  Sorry about not responding immediately.

The source RPM didn't rebuild correctly -- I was able to rebuild by
cd'ing to /usr/src/redhat/BUILD... and configuring/making manually.
Once that was done, the dump binary generated worked correctly.


Comment 4 Preston Brown 1999-04-13 19:00:59 UTC
Customer reports new RPM fixes problem -- i.e. problem will be fixed
for all customers as of RHL 6.0.
