Description ennio.zarlenga 1999-11-02 23:04:52 UTC
Just after the installation of the RedHat 6.0, I wanted to
install pbm2ppa.

------------------------------------------------------------
[root@ariane pbm2ppa-0.8.6]# make 720
cp defaults.720.h defaults.h
gcc -Wall -02 -c pbm2ppa.c
BUG IN DYNAMIC LINKER ld.so: dynamic-link.h: 57:
elf_get_dynamic_info: Assertion `!"bad dynamic tag"' failed!
make: *** [pbm2ppa.o] Error 127
------------------------------------------------------------

What does it mean ?
I encountered the same problem when I wanted to compile a
new kernel (2.2-13), typing: "make xconfig".

*** Bug 6685 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***

system is Pentium, video card is S3 86C765
Frequency: 100% reproducible
Install linux 6.1
run X windows using "startX"
the following error occurs
BUG IN DYNAMIC LINKER ld:so: dynamic_link.h:57
elf_get_dynamic_info: Assertion '! "bad dynamic tag"' failed

Tried different configurations using 'xf86config', problem
still occurred.

Also Tried a second pentium machine with video card S3
ViRGE.  The problem still showed.

This is a serious bug which I think may relate to other
ld.so bugs.  This will prevent users from running X and X
application.

Comment 2 krap 1999-11-07 17:05:59 UTC
I got same problem whenever I try to use gcc or egcs... (but not with
X)

After install of the RedHat 6.0 , when i type :
gcc or egcs i have this sentence :

BUG IN DYNAMIC LINKER ld.so: dynamic-link.h: 57: elf_get_dynamic_info: Assertion `! "bad dynamic tag"' failed!

But the command c++ work and i've no problem with X

Comment 5 Bill Nottingham 1999-12-06 16:58:59 UTC
What happens if you re-run ldconfig?
