Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 237803
Graphicsmagick gm binary segfaults on image rendering x86_64 & X86
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:02 EST
Description of problem:
While configuring the gallery2 product (external to Fedora) I discovered the
command being called to make thumbnails was causing a segfault of the "gm"
binary. I have verified this both using gallery2 to call the command and
calling it from the command line. I have also verified this on two x86_64
builds both fully patched and up to date. One on a core 2 duo chip and the
other on an amd64 platform.
I have been unable to verify this bug using the rpm-installed gallery2 package
due to restrictions on the machine. I suspect this should behave the same as
the problem is the call to the gm binary.
This issue also occurs in x86
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
