Description Matthew Geier 2003-04-21 06:50:12 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20030225

Description of problem:
ssh aborts with illegal instruction on Pentium MMX based Toshiba Libretto 100CT,
ssh -? works, but any attempt to actually connect to a remote host gives
'Illegal Instruction'.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Find Pentium MMX based system
2. Install RHL
3. Run ssh

Actual Results:  Illegal Instruction

Expected Results:  connection to remote machine

Additional info:

 When the hard disk containing the entire instalation is put in a PIII based
Dell laptop, ssh works fine.

 Assume P6 instructions have been included in the binary, hence ssh working in
the P6 Dell, but not the P5 Libretto.

 Should not the RPM be taged .i686.rpm like the kernel and glibc if this is the
case ?

Was the system installed on a i686 machine?  What arch is your openssl
