Summary: zypper segfaults due to unsecure getenv calls
Classification: openSUSE
Product: openSUSE 11.2
Version: Final
Platform: Other
OS/Version: Other
Status: NEW
Severity: Normal
Priority: P5 - None
Component: libzypp
AssignedTo: jkupec@xxxxxxxxxx
ReportedBy: jdsn@xxxxxxxxxx

CC: ma@xxxxxxxxxx, schubi@xxxxxxxxxx
Found By: Development
Blocker: ---

If zypper runs in an environment where no $HOME is set the getenv calls will
lead to a segfault in zypper. Michael Andres fixed this for SLE11-SP1.

As we are creating WebYaST appliances for 11.2 as well now, and there the
environment for zypper is not fully set we need a fixed version for 11.2 resp.
all releases that we want to support WebYaST for.
