Description Diego Elio Pettenò (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2010-10-09 12:14:11 UTC
You're receiving this bug because the package in Summary has produced _FORTIFY_SOURCE related warnings indicating the presence of a sure overflow in a static buffer.

Even though this is not always an indication of a security problem it might even be. So please check this out ASAP.

By the way, _FORTIFY_SOURCE is disabled when you disable optimisation, so don't try finding out the cause using -O0.

Thanks, fixed in openmotif-compat-2.2.3-r1.

Arch teams, please stabilise.

@amd64: This also affects app-emulation/emul-linux-x86-xlibs because it includes the library.
Comment 3 Ulrich Müller gentoo-dev 2010-10-10 05:53:53 UTC
I'll take the opportunity and move the openmotif-compat package back to SLOT 2.2 of x11-libs/openmotif. Stabilisation of openmotif-2.2.3-r10 will therefore be done in bug 340311.

Leaving amd64 in CC because of the emul* package.
