Description SpanKY gentoo-dev 2005-09-26 17:37:29 UTC
i was cleaning up netpbm when i noticed that the mpeg-tools source code has a
ton of /tmp/ hardcodes

running `make test` for example will create these files everytime:

the mpeg_encode program will use files named:
/tmp/foobar%d (where %d is a number which increments over time starting at 0)

the convert utilities eyuvtojpeg, vidtoeyuv, vidtojpeg, vidtoppm, and eyuvtoppm
all use /tmp/foobar when converting images
Comment 1 SpanKY gentoo-dev 2005-09-26 17:49:57 UTC
ive added mpeg-tools-1.5b-r2 (KEYWORD-ed -* for now) with three patches:

i was able to test the ppm convert utilities, but i have no idea how to test the
jmovie or vid ones ;)

i tested most of the rewritten tests and it produces same results as unpatched

the mpeg-encode patch i really have no idea how to test ...

x86 please test and mark stable.  
Comment 3 Mark Loeser (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-09-28 23:13:16 UTC
stable on x86
Comment 4 Thierry Carrez (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-09-29 00:46:07 UTC
Amd64 arch team: could you add the ~amd64 keyword to benefit from the update ?
Comment 5 Sune Kloppenborg Jeppesen (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-09-29 13:57:12 UTC
Let's have a GLSA vote while waiting for amd64. 
I tend to vote YES. 
Comment 6 SpanKY gentoo-dev 2005-09-29 15:24:43 UTC
i'd vote yes too since this can be triggered during by doing `emerge mpeg-tools`
and user has 'FEATURES=test' in make.conf :/
Comment 7 Thierry Carrez (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-09-30 00:41:06 UTC
I vote YES too.
Still waiting on amd64 to mark 1.5b-r2 ~amd64
