Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 109768
floating point exception on startup of binary built on previous version of kernel
Last modified: 2005-10-31 17:00:50 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):
Steps to Reproduce:
Floating point exception
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/
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.
It is not 27.4 but 27.9.4 and there are several bugfixes for TLS
handling. This is a RHL9 errata candidate.
No change in behavior with the 27.9.4

core file of crash
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.
