Description of problem:
Attempting to make a profiled executable results in a linker error.  (I have installed the glibc-profile package.)  I could find no library that provided the missing function (_dl_runtime_profile), I suspect it is internal to glibc but couldn't find it in the sources there, either.

> cat foo.c
int main() { return 0; }

> gcc -static -profile -g foo.c -o foo
/usr/lib/gcc/i386-redhat-linux/4.0.0/../../../libc_p.a(dl-trampoline.op)(.text+0x4b): In function `_dl_runtime_profile':
: undefined reference to `_dl_profile_fixup'
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Comment 2 Ulrich Drepper 2005-07-06 22:40:02 EDT
Should be fixed upstream and be in the next rawhide release.
Comment 3 Jakub Jelinek 2005-07-10 16:27:14 EDT
Fixed in glibc-2.3.90-2.
Comment 4 Jason Beardsley 2005-07-12 15:00:43 EDT
Thanks.  Do you know if this update will eventually find its way to the FC4
updates?  (I'm assuming it may not be safe to install the updated packages
directly from rawhide.)
