[SOLVED] whiptail --menu is broken after last update.

Hi,

After last update whiptail --menu doesn't work anymore.

for testing :

whiptail --menu "Menu" 0 0 0 "Item 1" "" "Item 2" ""

return :

free(): invalid pointer
Abandon (core dumped)

After some investigations, it seem this is due to the last release of popt.
Downgrading popt solve the issue.

Does anyone have encountered issue with this ?

I just flagged the package out of date to inform the maintainer of the new release that fixes this issue:
https://archlinux.org/packages/communit … 4/libnewt/
