Description David Mack 2007-03-05 15:05:19 EST
Description of problem:
-bash-3.00$ uname -a
Linux uls-shell 2.6.9-5.ELsmp #1 SMP Wed Jan 5 19:29:47 EST 2005 x86_64 x86_64 
x86_64 GNU/Linux
-bash-3.00$ /usr/sbin/zdump -v /etc/localtime
Segmentation fault

This happens on both RHEL4 and RHEL3. As a result, I can't determine if the 
machines in question need to be patched for the DST change on Sunday.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
-bash-3.00$ /usr/sbin/zdump --version
@(#)zdump.c     7.40

How reproducible:
/usr/sbin/zdump -v /usr/share/zoneinfo/America/Los_Angeles 
Segmentation fault

/usr/sbin/zdump -v /etc/localtime
Segmentation fault

Steps to Reproduce:
Actual results:

Expected results:

Not a segfault?

Comment 1 Petr Machata 2007-03-07 07:12:01 EST
This seems to be fixed in RHEL-3 (bug 146210), and I see the fix was commited to
RHEL-4 glibc almost a year ago.  Updating glibc packages should help.
