Comment 1 Lars Gullik Bjønnes 2006-10-25 06:20:09 EDT
I still se this, and it makes impossible to use rtorrent for downloading the fc6
torrents f.ex.

This is on a fairly updated fc5, only the latest kernel updates are missing.
Comment 2 Lars Gullik Bjønnes 2006-10-26 06:03:41 EDT
The problem is fixed by compiling with -O3 instead of -O2.

This is according to what the rtorrent web pages say about gcc 4.1.1 and
compile failures there.
Comment 3 Chris Chabot 2006-11-28 05:40:31 EST
Should be fixed with the 0.6.4-2 release.

rpm's are already available for develop & fc6, i'll push fc5 packages later this
