[bmay: Segmentation Fault]

This mailing list sure has low volume for a 'high volume' mailing
list (compared with Debian or Linux mailing lists...). I just want to
check that I am correctly subcribed, and that mail is not getting lost

Also, I was wondering if there are any known work arounds to the problem
I submitted (in the attached mail) to the bugs address? (I apologize if
I am being to impatient for posting here, so soon after posting the bug

If not I will invent my own.

Thanks in advance,
Brian May <bmay@csse.monash.edu.au>


I am new to the world of kerberos, and since I am not in the USA,
decided that Heimdal looks like a very interesting project (I presume
that Heimdal isn't covered by USA export restrictions, unlike the MIT

Anyway, I have two comments to with respect to version 0.1g:

1. heimdal doesn't understand the format of the KRBCCNAME as setup by
MIT kerberos V5 login, as it is not prefixed with "FILE:" or "MEMORY:".
I am not sure what program is at fault here. Anyway, this isn't a very
important issue (for me), but I thought I should let you know.

2. I can't add any principles to my newly created database...
The "kadmin -l" init operation works fine (at least no errors are shown),
but the "add name" operation results in the program seg faulting, after
I enter the password twice. I traced through the code using gdb, and
to me, it looks like it is trying to load the principle from
the database, but gets confused since it doesn't yet exists. I wont
bother providing all the details, as I think is should be
easy to reproduce, however please contact me if you need more information.

Here is the stack trace:

I would really like to be able to add principles to the database, so I
can test the rest of the program... Are there any known quick fixes to
solve this problem?

I am using Debian Slink, Linux 2.2.10.
