convertfromraw stdin segfaults => Fixed in SVN

Reported by: JeremyVisser Owned by:

Description

When attempting to convert a raw disk to a VDI from the commandline, it segfaults:

$ dd if=/dev/sdb | VBoxManage convertfromraw -format VDI stdin myimage.vdi

Converting from raw image file="stdin" to file="myimage.vdi"...
Segmentation fault

dd'ing to another dd works. Also, running VBoxManage convertfromraw without dd in the pipeline will result in the segfault.

You spotted a few missing parameter checks. You're calling the command with too few parameters. The "stdin" case requires the size of the image as the last parameter, as shown when dumping the list of supported commands.

The other bug (that the format parameter is mandatory and not optional, in contrast to the usage output) didn't apply, as you specified the format explicitly.

Will be all fixed in 2.1.2.
