Comment 1 Mike A. Harris 2001-09-01 11:18:15 UTC
Imake works fine for me.  Not sure what the problem is you're having,
but it is not reproduceable, and this is the first bug report filed
on it since 7.1 was released.

Comment 2 Need Real Name 2001-09-04 16:57:16 UTC
I can send a core dump file if that would be helpful to determine what's causing
the problem?

Here's the coredump.

Comment 4 Need Real Name 2001-09-17 18:05:51 UTC
The bug can be reclosed.  Turns out it was due to a bug in the patch level
of Clearcase I was using.  Installing a newer patch fixed the problem.

It was caused by clearcase not allowing permissions (+x) to be changed on 
one of the intermediate files built by imake.
