Description Michael Pfrommer 2004-01-23 11:44:49 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.0; .NET 
CLR 1.1.4322; .NET CLR 1.0.3705)

Description of problem:
This bug does not occur on RedHat 7.1.  It has come up during our 
migration to RHEL3.  It also occurs on RedHat 7.3.

We create a shared library,, which gets loaded by the Sun 
java plugin in the Mozilla browser.  When we upgraded our build 
machine to RedHat Linux 7.3 or RHEL3, the plugin began to fail.  

After investigation, it was failing to load with undefined symbol 
__pure_virtual.  If we link with the same libraries on RedHat 7.1, 
__pure_virtual is defined.  

RedHat 7.1: [13] nm | grep pure
007a9c54 T __pure_virtual

RedHat 7.3 or RHEL3: [72] nm | grep pure
         U __pure_virtual

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
gcc-2.96-113 (7.3) or gcc-3.2.3-20 (RHEL3)

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Unzip attached 
2. cd ptc_pvc_test
3. run script "make_pvc".  This will link with the objects 
in the directory
4. nm | grep pure


Actual Results: [72] nm | grep pure
         U __pure_virtual

Expected Results: [13] nm | grep pure
007a9c54 T __pure_virtual
