Description Flags
this should enable PIE none

Description Dhiru Kholia 2013-04-22 13:16:54 EDT
Description of problem:

http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging:Guidelines#PIE says that "you MUST
enable the PIE compiler flags if your package is long running ...".

However, currently gogoc is not being built with PIE flags. This is a
clear violation of the packaging guidelines.

This issue (in its wider scope) is being discussed at,



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


How reproducible:

You can use following programs to check if a package is hardened:




Steps to Reproduce:

Get scanner.py from https://github.com/kholia/checksec

$ ./scanner.py gogoc-1.2-23.fc19.x86_64.rpm
Comment 1 Juan Orti 2013-04-22 16:19:08 EDT
This package is already built with the macro _hardened_build

An example from the build log:
gcc -O2 -g -pipe -Wall -Wp,-D_FORTIFY_SOURCE=2 -fexceptions -fstack-protector --param=ssp-buffer-size=4 -specs=/usr/lib/rpm/redhat/redhat-hardened-cc1 -m64 -mtune=generic -O2 -Wall ...

I think "-specs=/usr/lib/rpm/redhat/redhat-hardened-cc1" does the -fPIE compiling, right?

Can be something wrong in your script? I will give it a look in more detail tomorrow.
