Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 73864
composite dumps core on certain operations
Last modified: 2013-04-02 00:17:04 EDT
Description of Problem:
Sorry about being a bit vague, but I haven't had time to investigate this yet.
If/when I do, I will update this bug with better information. In the mean time,
I have a reliable way of getting composite to crash, so there's definitely a bug.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. composite -compose Difference 1.pgm 2.ppm 3.ppm
This should work. It works under RedHat 7.3.
Not much yet. I don't know what it is about these files that causes this
problem. It may be that any time a .ppm is the output you get this problem, or
it may be related to the fact that there is a mixture of color and gray....
these are guesses. composite doesn't give any information. I will try to
compile a debugging version of this and look at it under gdb.
If the last argument is 3.pgm, you don't get a crash.
I'm uploading bzip2'ed versions of these files since they are so large and
compress so well. Uncompress before running the command, of course.
