Description of problem:
For my application, I need to link libdl.a, which contains a symbol
(_dl_load_lock) that is only in the static versions of libc (libc.a,
libc_p.a) and is not in libc.so.

Why is this so?

Thanks.


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
glibc-2.3.2-95.17  

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
used nm to verify this.

Comment 1 Jakub Jelinek 2004-05-17 10:52:10 UTC
Is it statically linked program or dynamically linked?
In any case, _dl_load_lock is/used to be a glibc private symbol and no application
nor third party library should ever use it.
See dl_iterate_phdr API for querying loaded libraries in a program.
If your application uses it, it should be fixed, if some third party
library uses this, you should file a bugreport with the third party
library provider.
