2.1.70 experiences

I’ve a couple of problems which look like they’re known issues.

Firstly - testdeps is failing to spot I do have Apache::DBI installed
correctly.

Secondly - testdeps doesn’t check for Regexp::Common - causing me the same
ClausesToSQL error I see a thread about.

I also have a problem which belongs in the journal of irreproducable
results with passwords.

I modified IsPassword to print out plaintext, DB entry and the result of
Crypt and was disturbed to find that the results of ‘crypt’ were varying
between the wrong and right values.

[does research]

I’m guessing this is the non-reentrant crypt rearing it’s head again?

Any known workarounds for prodding this into working? Does make testing
a touch frustrating when half of the time I can’t log in after an httpd
restart.

I’m running RedHat 8.0 with the glibc 2.2.93-5 RPM - surprised it hasn’t
fixed this yet, I confess.

Thanks.

There’s a bug open.

I guess it’s time to switch to MD5 as the default password algorithm. send mail
to rt-3.0-bugs@fsck.com?
