#22 Whiptail no longer works well with popt version 1.19
Closed: Fixed 3 months ago by mlichvar. Opened 3 months ago by matmoul.

whiptail is no longer usable on ArchLinux but it will also happen for other distributions soon.

For example :
whiptail --menu "Menu" 0 0 0 "Item 1" "" "Item 2" ""

return :
free(): invalid pointer
Abandoned (core dumped)

I've firstly posted a message on the archlinux bbs :

Then conqp has reported it to popt :
