Description j.tevessen 1999-10-12 21:25:41 UTC
I just bootet from the 6.1 cd and choosed to update my RH
60 system to 61. Worked, but since I did this, every call
to "updatedb" leads to a SIGSEGV.
The last few lines of a strace: (unfortunately the binary
of slocate is stripped) (called as root, since it's suid)
mmap(0, 23701, PROT_READ, MAP_PRIVATE, 3, 0) = 0x40013000
close(3)                                = 0
open("/lib/libnss_files.so.2", O_RDONLY) = 3
fstat(3, {st_mode=S_IFREG|0755, st_size=247348, ...}) = 0
read(3, "\177ELF\1\1\1\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\3\0\3\0\1\0\0\0\360\33"..., 4096) = 4096
--- SIGSEGV (Speicherzugriffsfehler) ---
+++ killed by SIGSEGV +++
Please contact me if you need further information and tell me what you need to know.

Fixed in slocate-2.0-4, which will be in the next Raw Hide release.
