Description Ulrich Drepper 2011-09-13 13:25:03 UTC
Description of problem:
64-bit machines (particularly x86-64) don't have to possibility to install the 32-bit version of the package.  That is needed because glibc-utils contains libmemusage.so.  Running memusage on x86-64 on a 32-bit binary won't work.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
2.14 and everything because

How reproducible:
always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.create 32-bit binary
2.run memusage binary
3.
  
Actual results:
ERROR: ld.so: object '/usr/$LIB/libmemusage.so' from LD_PRELOAD cannot be preloaded: ignored.

Expected results:
No message, it just works.

Comment 1 Jon Stanley 2011-09-13 14:36:53 UTC
I tried installing the 32-bit on a 64-bit machine, and it won't work since /usr/bin/mtrace differs (the address widths printed are different). It would work if we could split out the DSO's from this package into glibc-utils-libs and leave the correct scripts on for the system in question.

I've attached a patch which resolves this. Let me know if this is OK to push.

patch to spec

That patch does not work (has git garbage interspersed from merge conflicts between master and f16 where I see most development has been happening lately)

Moreover, the problem is fixed in the f16 branch by having the libraries included in the (main) glibc pacakge so that we get around this issue.

HEAD however is broken, as is F15. See http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/rpminfo?rpmID=2690378

RHEL6 is also broken, but I have a separate support case for that.
