Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 25755
zlib-1.1.3-18 is bad
Last modified: 2008-03-13 15:18:51 EDT
zlib-1.1.3-18 failed "make test" in zlib.
zlib-1.1.3-14 is ok. The problem is those
2 patches in zlib-1.1.3-18:
Ben, this was caused by your optimizations... could you take a look at it?
This defect is considered MUST-FIX for Florence Release-Candidate #1
this is fixed in zlib-1.1.3-19
zlib-1.1.3-19 still has a bug. But it is now much
harder to reproduce. You can give it a try. But
I cannot promise you can duplicate it easily.
1. Build anaconda with zlib 1.1.3-19.
2. Try harddrive install/upgrade.
When the loader loads modules from hdstg1.img
on harddrive, it will complain
* going to insmod eepro100.o (path is NULL)
error 2 reading header: cpio: Bad magic
and then die. Interesting enough, loader has
no problems of loading modules from
netstg1.img. Using the old zlib, the problem
ARG revert this immediately. If you need to make any changes to zlib please let
the installer team know first so we can test it before it hits the tree.
Can you test this again with zlib-1.1.3-21? That should squash a thinko the
last one introduced.
Mike, is this fixed with that version? If so, please resolve.
not resolved in zlib-1.1.3-21.
zlib-1.1.3-22 reverts the patch.
