Comment 1 Denis Leroy 2007-08-31 09:43:36 EDT
Hmm, worksforme. And that's on i386 ? I thought that problem was fixed since the
gc update. What version of gc do you have installed ("rpm -q gc") ?
Comment 2 origamifreak 2007-08-31 09:49:19 EDT
% rpm -q gc
package gc is not installed

That's weird, because yum says it's there:

# yum install gc
Setting up Install Process
Parsing package install arguments
Package libgc - 1:7.0-1.fc7.rf.i386 already installed and latest version
Nothing to do
Comment 3 origamifreak 2007-08-31 09:51:41 EDT
I guess rpm wants the full name.

# rpm -q libgc
Comment 4 Denis Leroy 2007-08-31 09:56:43 EDT
Please use the official libgc from Fedora. I can't help you with third-party
RPMs. This was a known problem that we patched a month ago or so.
Comment 5 Denis Leroy 2007-08-31 09:58:03 EDT

rpm -e libgc
yum -y install gc

Comment 6 origamifreak 2007-08-31 10:03:22 EDT
Awesome.  gc-6.8-3.fc7 works great.

Thanks so much, and sorry to have bothered you!
