ia32el cannot execute non-readable binaries
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:14 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):
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.
Should be fixed in ia32el-1.1-8.
Fix confirmed with ia32el-1.1-9.
