Description David Willis 2000-03-10 19:34:00 EST
Initial problem suddenly appeared whilst logged in under 4 users using 4
terminals.  Once logged off can not log back in to any terminal get the
message which I could only trap via a telnet session from a different host:

Red Hat Linux release 6.0 (Hedwig)
Kernel 2.2.5-15 on an i586
BUG IN DYNAMIC LINKER ld.so: dynamic-link.h: 57: elf_get_dynamic_info:
 `! "bad dynamic tag"' failed!

This message flashes past when trying to login with the username and
returns back to the login prompt.

Can boot the machine with Lilo: linux single

This bug has appeared out of no where! I upgaded all libc & glibc packages
along with all the errata updates months ago.  Server has been running
fine in the background with the only method of getting to the box via ftp
login for the past few days.  Prior to that it has been up for months
without any problems.

Bug 10119 is being closed because it looks to be a corruption problem on the
system side versus a problem with the code. I am unable to find duplicate
problems to this or duplicate it on our systems.
