Description brownb 1999-06-25 23:26:39 UTC
The rdist program dies with a memory allocation error or
something similar (sorry, but I do not have the output
handy) when I try to rdist a large amount of stuff from one
RH 6.0 Linux box to another.  With the same distfile, the
rdist that shipped with RH 5.1 works fine.  Repeat by
rdisting a large fraction of the complete RH 6.0 release
from one host to another.

------- Additional Comments From   06/25/99 19:52 -------

The message rdist prints before it dies is
LOCAL ERROR: Cannot malloc memory in linkinfo
