rlwrap crashes when wrapped tool prevents character echo
Last modified: 2010-10-11 13:42:33 EDT
Description of problem:
Type "rlwrap passwd" and press any key:
Changing password for user xxx.
Enter login(LDAP) password:
rlwrap: Oops, segfault - this should not have happened!
If you need a core dump, re-configure with --enable-debug and rebuild
Resetting terminal and cleaning up...
This occurs for any program preventing character echo for password entry (e.g. tools that could really use readline like sqlplus).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Simply rebuilding from the EPEL source RPM addresses the SEGV on my RHEL 5.3 systems. There is no newer "testing" version. Can we get this EPEL rpm rebuilt?
Looks like rlwrap was updated and rebuilt.
rlwrap.x86_64 0.37-1.el5 epel
Lans are you able to confirm that this bug has been fixed?
