Description CoreDump 2001-03-27 10:56:20 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.76 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.0-0.99.11 i586)

I've installed the newest kudzu and it crashed on next reboot.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. #gdb kudzu
2. (gdb) run

Actual Results:  Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.
0x08057f32 in psauxNewDevice () at eval.c:41
41      eval.c: No such file or directory.
        in eval.c
(gdb) where
#0  0x08057f32 in psauxNewDevice () at eval.c:41
#1  0x080582b9 in psauxNewDevice () at eval.c:41
#2  0x0804fe22 in compareDevice () at eval.c:41
#3  0x0804e1d8 in strcpy () at ../sysdeps/generic/strcpy.c:31
#4  0x400abe1e in __libc_start_main (main=0x804dc10 <strcpy+13504>, argc=1, 
    ubp_av=0xbffffb7c, init=0x8049ea8 <_init>, fini=0x80602fc <_fini>, 
    rtld_fini=0x4000d374 <_dl_fini>, stack_end=0xbffffb6c)
    at ../sysdeps/generic/libc-start.c:129

Expected Results:  No output (this is a subsequent run without any change
in hardware)

I don't know what kind of devices are registered in 'psauxNewDevice'
I do have a serial mouse (which still works).
An iomega ZIP drive on paralell port (which doesn't work).
An ne2k compatible PCI card.
Sb awe.

What version did you install?

# rpm -q kudzu

This is fixed in kudzu-0.98.6-1, which will be in the next rawhide release.
