Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 552846
Last modified: 2010-01-26 06:51:21 EST
All coreutils >= 7.0 should depend on gmp-devel + gmp
Otherwise coreutils will not support large numbers in contradiction to the docs
For example you get the following on F11:
$ expr 4951760154835678088235319297 + 0
expr: 4951760154835678088235319297: Numerical result out of range
Thanks for report, Pádraig. Will fix that soon.
Strange, fedora update system seems to be broken somehow. So just manually... update submitted to testing - koji build: http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/buildinfo?buildID=150619
Fixed in coreutils-7.2-7.fc11 which is already in stable ... wonder why it was not closed automatically by fedora updates system. Closing.
