Description Cristian Gafton 1999-06-15 14:33:39 UTC
I have hit a (show-stopper) problem with am-utils-6.0-3
redhat 6.0 (this is after a clean "everything" install). If
you try to use the -F option - which allows you to point to
external configuration file - amd promptly dumps core (some
amd options I use in our machines are only accessible from
configuration file as opposed to command line switches).

The core dump appears to be related to an fprintf to stderr
that's processed when the configuration is parsed from the
command line and the "-F" flag is found. A message is
to be printed to stderr but instead the whole thing core
dumps. Commenting out the offending line and rebuilding the
whole package is the workaround I'm currently using. This
might be a problem with the underlying glibc2.1...
