Description Lennert Buytenhek 2007-06-22 18:07:04 EDT
db4 includes nptl-abi-note.S, which is meant to ensure that we are running on at least a 2.4.20 kernel. Unfortunately, this file doesn't assemble on ARM, as it contains a line '.section .note.GNU-stack, "", @progbits', where '@' denotes the start of a comment in ARM assembler. (On ARM, you'd use '%progbits'.) I would include a patch to exclude building the nptl note on ARM systems, but considering that the current Fedora glibc causes /sbin/init to bomb out on boot if you're running on anything older than 2.6.9, do we really still need nptl-abi-note in this day and age? Thanks for your time.
Comment 1 Jindrich Novy 2007-07-31 10:11:50 EDT
Agreed. I think we can safely remove it from the devel db4. Thanks for pointing this out.
Comment 2 Lennert Buytenhek 2008-03-10 07:51:55 EDT
This has been fixed since db4 4.6.18-1.
