Description Ulrich Drepper 2005-06-24 02:08:50 UTC
Description of problem:
libslang-utf8.so uses the symbol __libc_enable_secure which is internal to
glibc.  This is not allowed.  The symbol can go away at any time, the type can
change, whatever.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
slang-devel-1.4.9-17

How reproducible:
always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.readelf -s /usr/lib*/libslang-utf8.so | fgrep GLIBC_PRIVATE
2.
3.
  
Actual results:
   677: 0000000000000000     4 OBJECT  GLOBAL DEFAULT  UND
__libc_enable_secure@GLIBC_PRIVATE (6)


Expected results:
No output.

Additional info:
rpm actually should have could that.

Comment 1 Ulrich Drepper 2005-06-24 02:57:20 UTC
rpm should have *caught* that.

Comment 2 Robert Scheck 2005-10-16 21:16:28 UTC
This is catched up by rpm:

error: Failed dependencies:
        ld-linux.so.2(GLIBC_PRIVATE) is needed by slang-1.4.9-20.i386

Florian worked around it in rpm spec file of -21 using _filter_GLIBC_PRIVATE.

Comment 3 Arjan van de Ven 2005-10-17 11:11:16 UTC
That is not a valid workaround obviously...

Comment 4 Petr Raszyk 2005-10-24 14:27:05 UTC
Fixed in slang-1.4.9, Release 22, patch slang-nointerlibc.patch
