Description of problem:
Under Shrike with all packages up2date and kernel 2.6.0-test3, I receive this
e-mail every night when cron.daily does the prelink thing. I just changed
/etc/sysconfig/prelink to "PRELINKING=yes".

I attach the e-mail with error messages.

Summary     : An ELF prelinking utility.
Description :
The prelink package contains a utility which modifies ELF shared
libraries and executables. This results in less relocations in need of
resolution at runtime, allowing programs to come up faster.

Comment 2 Jakub Jelinek 2003-08-25 08:22:33 EDT
prelink-0.3.0-4 should just log these errors (which just mean that some programs
couldn't be prelinked and reasons for it) into a log file, not mail them to root.
Errors with /usr/X11R6/lib/libGL.so.1.2 in it mean you don't have rawhide
XFree86 installed (you should install rawhide glibc as well), errors with
No such file or directory in it often mean some program can be started only
with explicit LD_LIBRARY_PATH (set e.g. in some wrapper script). Such programs
are not prelinkable, unless you tell those paths to prelink with --ld-library-path
option or unless they are changed to use DT_RPATH resp. DT_RUNPATH.
