Description Ulrich Drepper 2003-10-03 00:51:35 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.6a) Gecko/20030923 Firebird/0.7+ Description of problem: The ACL patch adds -lacl to LIBS which means all programs are linked with libacl. This is complete overkill, only six programs need libacl. The consequence is that all other programs pull in libacl and libattr at startup time for no reason, increasing startup time and memory footprint. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): coreutils-5.0-14 How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.ldd cat 2. 3. Actual Results: Dependencies include libacl and libattr. Expected Results: No dependency on these two libs. Additional info: I'll attach a patch.
Comment 1 Ulrich Drepper 2003-10-03 00:53:22 EDT
Created attachment 94907 [details] Patch to optimize use of -lacl I used the patch as patch908, at the very last position. It should be possible to merge the patch with the other ACL patches but I didn't bother.
Comment 2 Nicholas Miell 2003-11-08 19:14:35 EST
This breaks ACL support completely. The AC_CHECK_FUNCS tests in posic_acl.m4 depend on -lacl being in LIBS. By putting it in LIBACL instead, they will all fail, the appropriate HAVE_ACL_* macros don't get defined, and ACL support never gets built into the tools. The tools do get (unnecessarily, now) linked to libacl, though.
Comment 3 Ulrich Drepper 2003-11-09 00:41:02 EST
Created attachment 95844 [details] Patch to change configure to find acl_* functions in -lacl This is an interdiff to add -lacl temporarily to LIBS so that the tests for the acl_* succeed again.
Comment 5 Ulrich Drepper 2003-11-09 00:56:57 EST
Created attachment 95845 [details] Actually correct patch Forget the last patch. Compiling exposed an old bug which this one fixes as well.
Comment 7 Nicholas Miell 2003-11-09 16:23:23 EST
I can confirm that this fixes it.
Comment 8 Tim Waugh 2003-11-14 11:47:27 EST
Thanks. Fixed package is coreutils-5.0-30.sel.
