Description kbli 1998-12-03 18:21:41 UTC
Distribution: Official RedHat 5.2 for SPARC
Kernel:       2.0.35
library:      glibc-2.0.7-29
              glibc-devel-2.0.7-29
Machine:      SPARCstation 2 with 32MB RAM

How to reproduce the problem:

(1) %/usr/bin/ldd /bin/ls  (or any other dynamically
linked                               binaries)
    output:     not a dynamic executable

(2)  %dmesg | tail
    Fault: ld-linux.so.2[6090]: segfaults at 000023ac
pc=000023ac

(3) A core file was dumped in the current directory.

Comment 1 Preston Brown 1999-03-22 23:02:59 UTC
This has been fixed in RawHide with glibc 2.1.  You will be able to
get this functionality with Red Hat Linux 5.9 beta or our forthcoming
release of 6.0.
