EMBOSS binaries segfault on my fedora38 - Should I file a bug?

Since a little, the EMBOSS binaries, installed with dnf, returns:

segmentation fault (core dumped)

I do not know If it’s specific on my machine, or If it’s a known bug.

Should I file a bug report, and If so, to EMBOSS developers or rather Fedora packagers?

Thanks for your help,

Yeah, I would search to see if one already exists and if not file one for it on Bugzilla. Upstream is always helpful, but it’s still good to let the package maintainers know about it and a segfault could be something specific to the spec file or current Fedora library versions, etc.

If you want to be extra helpful and know what this means, you can install the relevant debuginfo packages for it and generate the trace dumps for the segfault with gdb and attach that trace dump to the bug report.

I installed EMBOSS-devel, ran GDB and filed a bug report: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=2242051.

I will try to check if the bug exists on a Fedora 38 brand-new installation on a VM.

Edit. The bug is still there on a fresh Fedora38 install.
