Description Paul Howarth 2010-09-08 13:22:51 UTC
Description of problem:
On F-14 (and Rawhide), rrdtool.i386 quickly segfaults when running via perl bindings. x86_64 doesn't seem to be affected, and neither does F-13.

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

How reproducible:
Every time.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum install rrdtool-perl rrdtool-doc
2. perl /usr/share/doc/rrdtool-doc-1.3.8/examples/perftest.pl
Actual results:
Some introductory blurb, then:
rrd_dontneed: Argument 'rrd_file' is NULL.
Segmentation fault

Expected results:
Some introductory blurb, then:
Performance test runs.

Additional info:
This is causing perl-RRD-Simple to fail to build on i386.

Comment 1 Paul Howarth 2010-09-08 14:08:41 UTC
I locally updated rrdtool to 1.44 and this problem did not manifest - I was able to build perl-RRD-Simple successfully.

Comment 2 Paul Howarth 2010-09-08 14:09:15 UTC
s/1.44/1.4.4/ of course.

Comment 3 Marcela Mašláňová 2010-10-25 09:41:30 UTC
Could you please look at this bug? It's blocking rebuild of some perl modules.
