Description of problem:
running tiffinfo on the attached file segfaults on s390x and ppc (endianity problem?)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. tiffinfo pc260001.tif
Um ... no attachment here ...
Created attachment 439416 [details]
Wouldn't be me if I hadn't forgotten to attach the file.
I've filed this upstream at http://bugzilla.maptools.org/show_bug.cgi?id=2258
I'm not clear on what a reasonable fix would be, and am inclined to consider it low-priority, since TIFFPrintDirectory is probably not used in any security-critical contexts.
Observed again , . Can we make some conclusion about our test  behaviour at the moment?
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for
inclusion in the current release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Because the affected component is not scheduled to be updated
in the current release, Red Hat is unfortunately unable to
address this request at this time. Red Hat invites you to
ask your support representative to propose this request, if
appropriate and relevant, in the next release of Red Hat
Enterprise Linux. If you would like it considered as an
exception in the current release, please ask your support
This request was not resolved in time for the current release.
Red Hat invites you to ask your support representative to
propose this request, if still desired, for consideration in
the next release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
This request was erroneously removed from consideration in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.4, which is currently under development. This request will be evaluated for inclusion in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.4.
I can no longer reproduce this on libtiff-3.9.4-10.el6_5 (current version). Both s390x and ppc64 work ok. This bug can IMO be closed.
Thanks. Closing it with CLOSED->CURRENTRELEASE.
Feel free to reopen it in case of troubles.
