Summary: Possible memory corruption: ioctl overflowed 3rd
Product: Fedora Core
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux

Description of problem:
When using the CDDB_get perl module to extract the CD ID from the compact disc in a CD or
DVD drive (IDE, SCSI or FireWire), I get the error "Possible memory corruption: ioctl
overflowed 3rd argument at /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.5/CDDB_get.pm line 135".
This is in a perl script I wrote to rip & tag MP3s from my CD collection. I installed
the CDDB_get module from CPAN via the cpan2rpm package, which was itself installed via yum
from the default Fedora Core 4 repositories. This operation worked without error on the
non-updated FC4 (fresh install). I realized I hadn't done an update in quite some
time, and after using "up2date --update" and restarting the system to boot into
the new kernel, this error presented itself.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install FC4 and all latest updates
2. Install cpan2rpm via up2date or yum
3. Install CDDB_get using cpan2rpm
4. Boot system into init level 3 (to keep X & desktop environs from interfering)
5. Insert an audio CD into the CD drive.
6. Download my cddbtest.pl script
Actual Results: script gives this error message:
Possible memory corruption: ioctl overflowed 3rd argument at
/usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.5/CDDB_get.pm line 135.
Expected Results: Successful read of the CD, followed by output of CDDB info for the
inserted audio CD.
