Issue with Hylafax
 
Recently I ran an
apt-get upgrade on my Ubuntu Server 8.10 which has hylafax-server running.
Apparently Ubuntu had an update for libtiff which was updated to version 4.
However, this update caused my hylafax received faxes not to be operable. In
specific, hylafax now receives a fax and places it in recvq. The file in this
folder is perfectly fine. I have however added the functionality to send all
received faxes via e-mail as an attachment (in pdf) which used to work perfectly
fine before the libtiff upgrade. Now the pdf's that are sent as attachments are
not readable.
*
Does anyone have any
suggestions on how to get that functionality back??
*
Thank
you.
Chris

I'd

1 - file a bug
2 - find out why they updated libtiff (e.g. bug fix? security issue?)
3 - reinstall the older version of libtiff assuming 1 isn't fixed and
2 isn't a big issue and pin it there.
