Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 217248
convert jpeg to pdf fails
Last modified: 2008-04-26 03:32:42 EDT
Description of problem:
"convert *.jpg album.pdf" hangs indefinitely, with no CPU or disk activity. When
interrupted with Ctrl-C, the pdf file is just a few hundred bytes.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Dont know with which release it stopped working, but it works as expected with
ImageMagick-188.8.131.52-3.fc4.2 (on FC4). i.e. the pdf output file is a clean pdf
wrap around the jpeg images.
/+1. Works just fine on FC5 - fails on FC6.
$ gdb convert
(gdb) r initial-contract-00??.jpg initial-contract.pdf
Starting program: /usr/bin/convert initial-contract-00??.jpg initial-contract.pdf
<Wait 50 seconds, Ctrl-C...>
Program received signal SIGINT, Interrupt.
