Description Sune Kloppenborg Jeppesen gentoo-dev 2006-11-28 21:57:08 UTC
Seems like evince is affected by GLSA 200611-20. Any other packages bundling gv?
Comment 1 Stefan Cornelius (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2006-11-29 03:31:59 UTC
confirmed that it is possible to overwrite the EIP. I'll attach a patch that fixed the problem for me. somebody should doubletest, just to make sure that i didnt mess up.there is another app called "ggv" that might bundle gv code, but not checked yet.

Gnome please advise.
Comment 5 Daniel Gryniewicz (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2007-03-26 19:58:08 UTC
Okay, I've added 0.6.1-rc3 to the tree with this fix.

Arches:  Literally the only change was to the postscript backend.  You should only need to test .ps files.
