Description Nikos Mavrogiannopoulos 2015-09-14 07:58:20 EDT
Description of problem:
gmp installs a .hmac file for /usr/lib/fipscheck/libgmp.so.10 but not for the library in /lib/sse2/fipscheck/libgmp.so.10. That means that in platforms where the /lib/sse2 library is used we cannot run the FIPS validation routine.

How reproducible:
cat <<_EOF_ >c.c
#include <gnutls/gnutls.h>
int main()

Steps to Reproduce:
1. gcc -m32 -lgnutls c.c
2. ./a.out

Actual results:
Error in GnuTLS initialization: Error while performing self checks.

Expected results:

Where is the correct place to store the second hash? Libraries have the same name, only path is different.
Comment 12 Tomas Mraz 2015-09-16 11:17:28 EDT
It should be stored in /usr/lib/sse2/fipscheck/
