Description Sergey Tikhonov 2005-01-26 15:49:14 EST
Description of problem:
On Linux/Alpha (build from FC3 source packages)
some application (especially mozilla, firefox, konqueror, gij) crashes
when started by linuxthreads version of ld.so dynamic loader. If I use
NPTL version of ld.so - the application above started to work.

After some investigation the problem found in patch to the
glibc/linuxthreads/sysdeps/tls.h contained in fedora.patch distributed
with src.rpm of glibc.

The attached file contains patch to the original glibc CVS file that
fixes the problem.

Thank you,

Is there any chance for patch to be applied?
Is it possible be add Alpha to list of nptl arches?
Thank you.

FC5 will have no LinuxThreads support anymore, therefore this will resolve
itself magically.

I meant to close the bug...
