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
Got 2.2.90-7 and tested it...all programs that I found crashing with -6
are now working fine. FYI
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?
OK, yes, this fixes the Mozilla crash. Well hunted.
