Description Todd Allen 2004-02-12 16:19:48 UTC

Description of problem:
The daily /etc/cron.daily/prelink script fails every day with the
following error:

/etc/cron.daily/prelink: line 36: 19629 Segmentation fault     
/usr/sbin/prelink -av $PRELINK_OPTS >>/var/log/prelink.log 2>&1

It leaves a file named /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.$blah,
where $blah is a pseudo-random sequence of characters.  A new one of
those appears every night.  Those files are 0-length.  (Also, the
presence of those files freaks out any subsequent runs of ldconfig.) 
The /usr/lib/libstdc++.so., which I assume is what's confusing
prelink, is from compat-libstdc++-7.3-2.96.118.

This happens on two different systems, each of which was upgraded from
Red Hat 9 to Fedora Core 1.  The problem started immediately after the

In the hopes that it was simply stale information somewhere, I tried
manually running prelink as "prelink -av -mR".  That succeeded.  But
subsequent night runs of the above script continued to fail.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Run /etc/cron.daily/prelink (or just wait until 4am when it
happens automatically).

Actual Results:  /etc/cron.daily/prelink: line 36: 19629 Segmentation
fault      /usr/sbin/prelink -av $PRELINK_OPTS >>/var/log/prelink.log 2>&1

Expected Results:  (silence)

I wasn't getting this under FC1, but I was getting the same error
quite consistently under FC2 test3 until installing prelink-0.3.2-1
from the development updates.  This update seems to have made the
problem go away, so I guess this bug is somehow related to bug 118522
or bug 121109, which prelink-0.3.2-1's changelog claims to address.

Comment 4 Jakub Jelinek 2004-10-29 09:30:25 UTC
Yeah, please try to reproduce this with FC3t3 (or FC3rc[1-4]) prelink.
If it works there, this bug can be closed (FC1 is EOL).

Comment 5 Jakub Jelinek 2004-11-24 14:40:22 UTC
Expect it is fixed then.
