Description Bernie Innocenti 2003-11-08 20:56:48 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.5) Gecko/20030927

Description of problem:
/bin/rpm is now dynamically linked against several
libraries, some of which are in /usr.

Even if this is intentional, I strongly recommend
reverting to a statically linked binary as in
RH8/RH9.

On one system, up2date crashed in the middle of
a big update, leaving an old version of
/bin/tls/libpthread.so along with several updated
binaries which were linked against new newer
glibc-2.3.2.

I was unable to run rpm to complete the upgrade,
turning a trivial problem into a hell.


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
rpm-4.2.1-0.30

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. ldd -r /bin/rpm

NPTL and TLS prevent static linking, there are legacy issues
with dlopen'ed modules.
