As of libjpeg-8, the lossless rotate function in feh stopped working, with error 'bogus array access'. I have fixed this problem & emailed the author, but got no reply, so I'll post it here instead since I use Arch!


In root FEH directory,
1. remove jpegint.h from src/
2. copy latest transupp.h & transupp.c from libjpeg-8 sources to /src
3. Add extra initialisation (patch file attached) to /src/imlib.c function feh_edit_inplace_lossless_rotate():
transformoption.perfect = FALSE;
transformoption.crop = FALSE;

Rotate then works & I've had no further problems.

Additional info:
* package version - latest update, extra/feh 1.3.4-6

Steps to reproduce:
feh -F <any jpeg image>

then use shift - < > (or menu) to do in place rotate.
This task depends upon

I cannot reproduce it here.

EDIT: tried with another image and it crashed...
