Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 112757
libc.so is an ASCII file in glibc-devel-2.3.3-2
Last modified: 2007-04-18 13:00:53 EDT
Description of problem:
Starting with glibc-devel-2.3.3-2 the file /usr/lib/libc.so is a
plain ASCII file with the following contents:
/* GNU ld script
Use the shared library, but some functions are only in
the static library, so try that secondarily. */
*** BUG in libc/scripts/output-format.sed *** elf32-i386,elf32-i386
GROUP ( /lib/libc.so.6 /usr/lib/libc_nonshared.a )
This makes nearly impossible to compile anything while
glibc-devel-2.3.3-2 is installed. Downgrading to glibc-devel-2.3.3-1
fixes the problem.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Upgrade to glibc-devel-2.3.3-2
/usr/lib/libc.so is a plain ASCII file, when in fact it should be a
/usr/lib/libc.so should be a dynamic library.
