simpler script that segfaults (5.05 KB, text/plain)

Description Joe Orton 2010-06-05 14:42:16 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #598160 +++

Description of problem:
I received an email with the following:

  Certificate for hostname 'iridium', in file (or by nickname):

  The certificate needs to be renewed; this can be done
  using the 'genkey' program.

When attempting to run genkey --days 365 localhost (this is a workstation using a self signed key) I get an error about a /etc/pki/tls/private/localhost.key existing, to remove it first and then re-run genkey. Once removed if I re-run genkey I get an immediate segfault. I just ran this on a CentOS 5.4 box moments before without a problem.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. genkey --days 365 servername
Actual results:

Expected results:
New cert

Also, genkey --gdb servername is of no help as it just segfaults anyway before getting into gdb

simpler script that segfaults

This is not a bug on genkey.  This script is basically a HelloWorld that uses perl_Newt and when I run it, 'perl ./hello.pl elio', it segfaults on F-13 and not on F-12. I looked at perl_newt in F-12 &F-13 and the code is identical expect that it was rebuilt with a slighly newer version of perl in F-13.

Comment 5 Elio Maldonado Batiz 2010-06-11 18:00:04 UTC
My perl skills are a bit limited and knowledge of perl_newt more so.
Joe, do you see anything wrong with hello.pl?

Comment 6 Joe Orton 2010-06-16 13:52:31 UTC
Ah, sorry for blaming you for this unnecessarily, my bad :(

Yes this is clearly a perl-Newt issue.
