Red Hat Product Errata RHBA-2000:132 normal SHIPPED_LIVE Bug fixing update of GCC 2.96 2000-12-19 05:00:00 UTC

Description Need Real Name 2000-11-28 14:48:45 UTC
After installing the new glibc (RHBA-2000:079-08) , fortran programs give a
strange warning at compile time.
Any program like 

      program main
      print*,'Helo world'

Will compile saying

>g77 main.f
>/usr/lib/gcc-lib/i386-redhat-linux/2.96/libg2c.a(open.o): In function
>open.o(.text+0x4e6): the use of `tempnam' is dangerous, better use
>Compilation finished at Tue Nov 28 15:31:37

Comment 1 Jakub Jelinek 2000-11-28 16:24:37 UTC
libf2c uses tempnam internally and glibc warns about uses of this function
during link time.
gcc-g77-2.96-65 will include Toon Moene's fix for this.
