Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 117866
Some binaries not stripped
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:00 EST
Description of problem:
Some binaries appear to not be stripped by brp-strip
This may be because the information is not 'debug' information that
would be stripped by strip -g ???
This is in addition to 'shared object' objects not being stripped by
brp-strip, whereas they do appear to be by find-debuginfo.sh
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. rebuild rpm
Created attachment 98399 [details]
List of non stripped srpms/files
Note that "full" stripping sometimes may cause (severe) problems.
If you strip dietlibc without -g (/usr/lib/dietlibc/lib-i386/start.o,
to be more precise) and build anaconda with that "fully-stripped"
dietlibc version, both anaconda's init and loader static binaries
WON'T WORK ANYMORE and your install boot will panic just after loading
