Description Tim Cuthbertson 2011-06-26 04:38:57 EDT
Description of problem:
The gnome-shell binary in /usr/bin/gnome-shell uses a hard-coded RPATH in the elf binary. This is advised against in the fedora packaging guidelines, and thwarts efforts to use (for example) a custom mutter library.

At the very least, the system path (/usr/lib64) should be removed from rpath as it serves no purpose.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Steps to Reproduce:
$ readelf --dynamic /usr/bin/gnome-shell | grep RPATH
 0x000000000000000f (RPATH)              Library rpath: [/usr/lib64:/usr/lib64/gnome-shell:/usr/lib64/gnome-bluetooth]
Comment 1 Elad Alfassa 2011-06-26 06:24:57 EDT
/usr/lib64 was removed from gnome shell's RPATH in https://admin.fedoraproject.org/updates/gnome-shell-3.0.2-4.fc15
