Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 146304
Some applications that use NPTL thread library crash if loaded by linuxthreads version (installed by default) of ld.so
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:59 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.
Created attachment 110270 [details]
patch to glibc CVS version of linuxthreads/sysdeps/alpha/tls.h
Is there any chance for patch to be applied?
Is it possible be add Alpha to list of nptl arches?
FC5 will have no LinuxThreads support anymore, therefore this will resolve
I meant to close the bug...
