Description Yoav Zach 2004-11-02 03:56:12 EST
Description of problem:
ia32el cannot execute non-readable binaries. to fix that - please 
change the activation script: the string passed to the kernel for 
registering ia32el as the translator of elf32 binaries currently ends 
with ":P". adding the flag C (":PC") will tell the kernel to open the 
binary for ia32el and thus fix the problem.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
put the simplest 32 bit binary in a local directory (not nfs), change 
its permissions to be non-readable and try to execute it. the process 
will fail silently.
Actual results:

Expected results:
