Description blakem 1999-03-05 16:17:52 UTC
I have installed Redhat 5.2, Oracle 8.0.5, and perl
DBD::Oracle and DBI.  I am getting a segmentation fault
when I execute a sql query with over 20 fields.  I tried
this query in sqlplus  on linux, and receieved the same
segmentation fault at that limit.  I have tried the same
query using both perl and sqlplus on NT and it works.
After this I have tried to install qpopper-2.52-1.i386.rpm,
and when I try to run /usr/sbin/popauth, I get a
segmentation fault.  I have been able to develop a cgi that
executes my query by splitting it into three seperate query
strings.  Both previously mentioned segmentation faults
result in a core dump.
