Ditto here....xfig, xmgrace (not redhat supplied), etc. are all 
crashing...had to go back to -3. xmgrace gives an error message
saying it was incorrect installation.....perhaps some library is
pointing at a wrong place.

This might be http://sources.redhat.com/ml/libc-hacker/2002-02/msg00128.html
I'll build glibc-2.2.90-7 soonish, lets see if it is just it or something
else too.

Comment 3 Sammy 2002-02-25 19:01:24 UTC
Got 2.2.90-7 and tested it...all programs that I found crashing with -6
are now working fine. FYI

Comment 4 Bill Crawford 2002-02-25 20:45:26 UTC
I started downloading this ... and it stopped all of a sudden and I couldn't
reconnect.  Is people.redhat.com being relocated as I type?

Comment 5 Bill Crawford 2002-02-25 21:03:29 UTC
OK, yes, this fixes the Mozilla crash.  Well hunted.
