bumping severity. imho a completely unusable devel-package is higly severe.

Comment 2 Bernhard Weisshuhn 2007-03-09 13:24:48 UTC
Bug still present in cracklib-devel-2.8.9-9 from fc7 test.

Doesn't anybody compile anything with cracklib any more? It plain doesn't work!
What use is a devel package with broken headers?

Comment 3 Till Maas 2008-01-05 18:02:20 UTC
Fixed in cracklib-2.8.9-10
To test this, the test.c creation had to be:

echo -e "#include <packer.h>\nint main(){0;}" > test.c

(the -e to echo was missing)
