Description Steve Schwartz 2007-03-04 20:06:36 UTC
Description of problem: htdig does not display search results.
/var/log/httpd/error_log shows 'Premature end of script headers: htsearch ...'
When trying htsearch as per's faq regarding this error it gives a
segmentation fault.
Without the compat-libstdc++ rpm's, /var/log/httpd/error_log complains that it
can't find
As per's faq, the segmentation fault is possibly related to the
libstdc++ library.
This worked properly on FC5

2. Install compat-libstdc++-296-2.96-138 and compat-libstdc++-33-3.2.3-61

Comment 1 Adam Tkac 2007-03-05 13:52:37 UTC
Could you please try to reproduce this problem with latest htdig (from rawhide)?
If segfaults still occurs please upload core dump and specify your architecture.
I'm not able to reproduce this with latest htdig on my i386.

for core dump do this:
$ ulimit -c unlimited
run htsearch
you can find file named core.* in your home directory

Comment 2 Steve Schwartz 2007-03-06 02:35:42 UTC
I've installed htdig from rawhide: htdig-3.2.0b6-10.fc7

This appears to have corrected the problem, everything is working properly.

will this be included in fc6 updates?


Comment 3 Adam Tkac 2007-03-06 08:31:10 UTC
This could be fixed in htdig-3.2.0b6-8.fc6 (will be avaliable tomorrow). If this
problem still exists please reopen this.
