Description Yaakov Selkowitz 2015-11-26 04:20:38 UTC
Attempting to build ckermit from Fedora EPEL on RHELSA 7.2 ends with the following error:


ckcpro.o: In function `wart':
/builddir/build/BUILD/ckermit-9.0.302/ckcpro.c:1510:(.text+0x3080): relocation truncated to fit: R_AARCH64_LDST64_ABS_LO12_NC against symbol `dest' defined in .bss section in ckcmai.o
collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status

Note that this package builds correctly on F23, but not F22 or earlier either (with the same error).  Apparently there is a fix in more recent toolchain that we are missing in 7.2.

Comment 2 Nick Clifton 2016-01-29 11:30:48 UTC
The new 7.3 binutils is based upon the F23 binutils, so changing this BZ to MODIFIED so that QE can test/verify.

Comment 5 Miloš Prchlík 2016-06-27 12:14:36 UTC
Verified for build binutils-2.25.1-20.base.el7 - ld refuses to link the binary - which the expected behavior, as per https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1300543#c3 - but provides more descriptive message.
