Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 141622
setarch on FC2 is missing the -L option
Last modified: 2007-04-18 13:16:27 EDT
Description of problem:
On fedora-list I read the suggestion to use 'setarch i386 -L cmd' to
run cmd with the legacy virtual address layout settings.
However, setarch 1.4 on FC2 doesn't have a -L option.
On a FC3 system, the option is there, and it solves the problem I am
facing. So could an update to setarch for FC2 be published?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora Core 2 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for
security updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please
reopen and reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a
security issue and hasn't been resolved in the current FC3 updates or
in the FC4 test release, reopen and change the version to match.
Yes, the -L option is present since FC3 version of setarch. I can no more
release an update for FC2 as it's now in Fedora Legacy and I'm no longer
permitted to release an update there.
Reassigning to Fedora Legacy.
Hmmm. We seem to not have a setarch component in the FL product in Bugzilla.
Anyway, we don't have the resources to do non-security updates for Fedora
Legacy; I wish we did. Thanks for looking at this.
