+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #29499 +++
On a simple hello.tex like this:
xelatex and luatex crash because they were compiled with an older zlib (I found
the description of the reason somewhere on the web, in a mailing list):
$ xelatex hello.tex
This is XeTeXk, Version 3.1415926-2.2-0.999.6 (Web2C 7.5.7)
%&-line parsing enabled.
(Fatal format file error; I'm stymied)
$ luatex hello.tex
PANIC: unprotected error in call to Lua API (zlib library version does not
match - header: 1.2.7, library: 1.2.8)
$ rpm -qf /usr/bin/xelatex /usr/bin/luatex
$ rpm -q zlib
To avoid such errors, an explicit dependcy on the version of zlib should be set
in the RPM package.
(For them to work, they should be rebuilt now, anyway.)
