Description Josh Boyer 2007-12-29 19:10:26 EST
Description of problem:

Alpine currently creates a .pine-debug<N> file in the users home directory every
time it's started

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1.  start alpine
2.  quit alpine
3.  ls -la ~/.pine*
Actual results:

.pine-debug<N> files are created

Expected results:

No debug files created

Additional info:

If you build alpine with the --disable-debug option passed to configure, it will
not do this.  I suggest adding that to the spec file
Comment 1 Joshua Daniel Franklin 2007-12-30 22:05:18 EST
OK, thanks for the report. I'll look into this when I get back from holiday.
Comment 2 Rex Dieter 2008-03-24 08:09:49 EDT
fyi, in testing alpine-1.10 builds, tried adding --disable-debug, but that
didn't help here.
Comment 3 Joshua Daniel Franklin 2008-03-24 13:59:23 EDT
The alpine configure has a bug, you have to use "--enable-debug=no"

This issue is resolved in this alpine build in testing:


You may download it there for early access.
Comment 4 Joshua Daniel Franklin 2008-04-03 14:25:58 EDT
This update is now in the testing repo, install with

yum -y --enablerepo=updates-testing update alpine

If it works for you please give it +1 here:


When it reaches +5 it will be pushed to stable I think.
