Description Thorsten Leemhuis 2005-05-22 12:43:08 UTC
This package failed to rebuild on x86_64 for FC4 Development around 2005-04-11
after an automated release bump. No build logs available afaics.

Please request a rebuild.

x86_64 is unsupported.  libsafe is i386 only.

Okay -- what's this then: 
http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/extras/development/x86_64/libsafe-2.0-16.fdr.1.rh80.x86_64.rpm
Should it be removed?

And why can gentoo build for x86_64 when we can't:

Comment 3 Warren Togami 2005-05-22 21:08:27 UTC
Does it actually work?  Until somebody proves that it works it should be
removed.  It can be dangerous otherwise.

Reopening -- I'll look into that (meat: fix it or remove it from x86_64 before FC4)

s/meat/means/

Comment 6 Warren Togami 2005-05-24 06:42:45 UTC
With FORTIFY_SOURCE libsafe is mostly redundant, and might actually be avoided
for most library calls since the built binaries call the *_chk equivalents. 
libsafe was useful before FORTIFY_SOURCE in cases where you were unable to use
the protection of exec-shield.

libsafe should theoretically not be dangerous on i386 though.  I don't think it
is worth the effort on x86_64.  There is plenty other higher priority stuff
needing fixing for FC4.

Okay, I filled a remove request for the x86_64-package on
http://www.fedoraproject.org/wiki/Extras_2fFC4Status
