Description Jack Botner 2000-02-24 08:11:18 EST
RH PPP Dialer (rp3) crashes with segmentation fault.

I applied the rp3 fix rp3-1.0.1-1.i386.rpm, but the problem persisted.

Call trace:

(gdb) r
Starting program: /usr/bin/rp3

Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.

Comment 1 Nalin Dahyabhai 2000-02-28 17:08:59 EST
I believe this bug is fixed in the latest version of rp3 from CVS, which we've
included in the 6.2 Beta.  Please grab a copy of the updated package from
http://people.redhat.com/nalin/test/ and let me know if it solves this problem.
Comment 2 Jack Botner 2000-03-06 17:37:59 EST
The problem was resolved after installing rp3-1.0.7-3.i386.rpm
