Description Zenon Panoussis 2003-08-03 14:51:09 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4) Gecko/20030703

Description of problem:
On an older Duron 600 with a completely virgin severn installation:

# rpm -hiv kernel-2.4.21-20.1.2024.2.1.nptl.src.rpm
# rpmbuild -bb --target athlon /usr/src/redhat/SPECS/kernel.spec 

This builds correctly until the end, and then runs haywire with messages like 

/usr/lib/rpm/find-debuginfo.sh: line 25: 22221 Segmentation fault
/usr/lib/rpm/debugedit -b $RPM_BUILD_DIR -d /usr/src/[every single module] "is
not a shared library"

I ^C'ed after a while, so I don't know what rpm would do if I had let it run. 

How reproducible:
Didn't try
Comment 1 Zenon Panoussis 2003-08-03 15:09:17 EDT
Perhaps I cut a bit too much from the error messages; here is one in its entirety:

/usr/lib/rpm/find-debuginfo.sh: line 25: 22221 Segmentation fault
/usr/lib/rpm/debugedit -b $RPM_BUILD_DIR -d /usr/src/debug -l $SOURCEFILE $f
extracting debug info from
is not a shared library
not a shared library"

For the rest, I'm not at all sure whether this should be filed against the
kernel or against rpm. 

Comment 2 Jeff Johnson 2003-08-19 09:44:45 EDT
I believe this is fixed in very latest rpm+elfutils from Raw Hide.

Reopen if not.
