Description Thornton Prime 2001-01-31 23:42:09 UTC
Typing in an invalid name server causes a segmentation fault:

>$host www.yahoo.com null
>Segmentation fault

Comment 1 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2001-02-01 13:56:14 UTC
Downgrading to glibc 2.2.1-2 fixes this. (2.2.1-3 i386 causes the same crash, 
so it's not the --enable-kernel change).

Reassigning to glibc.

Comment 2 Jakub Jelinek 2001-02-01 16:38:25 UTC
Should be fixed by
It will make it into next glibc rpm build.

Comment 3 Glen Foster 2001-02-01 20:01:22 UTC
We (Red Hat) should really try to fix this before the next release.
