After running zypper ref this morning, further information.

Factory updated from Boost version 1.39.0 to 1.42.0 on
friday(?). I suspect this being the cause. Now valgrind
complains, and also a buch of testcases fail...

# rpm -q boost

Yes, but the installed version does not matter here. Most of the
boost libraries are header-only. This means the code is inlined at
compiletime, and there is no additional shared library used at

So the boost version that was used to compile libzypp is the
important one.

JFYI: I changed libzypp-7.0 to be compiled with -fno-strict-aliasing.
This should help until the issue is finaly fixed. Should be available
in openSUSE:Factory soon.

Please don't forget
yast2-ncurses-pkg yast2-pkg-bindings yast2-qt-pkg as they depend on

They get compiled automatically. libzypp was checked in, so the next
factory update will have it. As gcc was checked in as well, it might take
another day.


with these a zypper ref works :-)
the mentioned yast modules don't :-(

Mmh, perhaps they need -fno-strict-aliasing as well. Michael, what do you
