Description Jared Harper 2003-11-11 12:38:01 EST
Description of problem:
ld-2.3.2.so crashes with a divide by zero FPE during startup.  My 
call stack is


If I set LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.4.19 then the binary will run without the 
FPE.  This same binary will run on RH AS 2.1 (if I copy some 
libraries versions that are missing), RH 8, SuSE 8, 8.2.  I have not 
been able to try AS 3.0 yet.

NOTE: I have another application, built exactly the same, and that 
application will run without the FPE.  I can send a core file if that 
helps.  Since I never enter my application, I have not been able to 
get very far in debugging this.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.gwmta -show
Actual results:
Floating point exception

Expected results:
Application should start and display a splash screen, then exit

Please try ftp://people.redhat.com/jakub/glibc/errata/2.3.2-27.9.4/
Comment 2 Jared Harper 2003-11-11 13:02:54 EST
I have just finished updating to 2.3.2-27.9 and the problem still 
exists.  I there something in 2.3.2-27.4 that is not in 27.9 that is 
worth back rev'ing.
Comment 3 Jakub Jelinek 2003-11-11 13:05:01 EST
It is not 27.4 but 27.9.4 and there are several bugfixes for TLS
handling.  This is a RHL9 errata candidate.
Comment 4 Jared Harper 2003-11-11 13:32:15 EST
No change in behavior with the 27.9.4

Are you still able to reproduce this with Fedora Core 3 test2
glibc?  If yes, please provide a self-contained testcase.

Without a testcase there is nothing to do.
