Segmentation fault when sshing an hostname with no address associated
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:49:08 EDT
On RH8, when sshing an hostname with no address associated, I get a :
[nim@poseidon nim]$ ssh fr
ssh: fr: No address associated with hostname
On Rawhide (same user and nfs-mounted home) :
[nim@ulysse nim]$ ssh -v fr

Erreur de segmentation
Don't know if it's serious or purely cosmetic, but a core command as ssh should
be crashproof IMHO
I can't replicate this error (same version of ssh, more recent versions of many
underlying packages like glibc), I get a sane exit without segmentation fault.
Is the error occuring? If so, is there more background information you can
provide on the system's configuration (changes from default setup in openssh,
any libraries not from the current rawhide)?
I can't reproduce it either now. My openssh version didn't change ; however I
did a couple of rawhide syncs since the report, so probably the problem was in
another rpm that changed since then. I'll close the bug.
