Description hag 1999-01-12 21:46:55 UTC
genhdlist (part of the installation tools source) will core
dump if the RedHat/RPMS directory contains files that are
not RPMs.  This is due to a failure to check a return status
from rpmlib at one point in genhdlist.  Patch to follow.

This has been fixed for next release. Patched source code can be
