  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • When making a baseline, if ClearCase encounters a bad "timeline"
    (internal object)
        where the timeline does not have any entries
       then the "make baseline" operation crashes with a
    Segmentation Fault
    
    
    Steps to reproduce:
    The "bad baseline" maybe formed by interrupting a "make
    baseline" operation by [Ctrl]+C,
          or killing the process in some other way
          although not every such interruption will have this side
    effect.
    
    Once this condition exists, any subsequent attempt to make
    baseline in the same stream
    will encounter the problem.
    

Local fix

  • Identify the bad timeline and add an appropriate Foundation
    hyperlink to it
