Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 173818
binary contains a hardcoded rpath on x86_64 and fails to find the "correct" libGl.so.1 due to that
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:17 EST
Description of problem:
The ppracer binary contains the hardcoded rpath /usr/lib64 in it. This is bad
because it overrides the normal ldconfig way to find the correct librarys.
This results in a problem that shows up together with the nvidia or ati drivers
from livna.org. The libGL.so.1 for the ati drivers for example is placed in
/usr/lib64/ati-fglrx/ and activated by having a line with
"/usr/lib64/ati-fglrx/" on top of /etc/ld.so.conf. This normaly works fine. But
ppracer contains this hardcoded rpath and therefor uses the libGL.so.1 from
/usr/lib64. Therefore ppracer won't work on x86_64-systems with the ati or
nvidia drivers from livna.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
ERROR 0001: file '/usr/bin/ppracer' contains a standard rpath '/usr/lib64' in
The rpatch is a result of a bug in fontconfig:
$ freetype-config --libs
-L/usr/lib64 -Wl,--rpath -Wl,/usr/lib64 -lfreetype -lz
This is fixed in devel
but it seems we won't get this fixed in FC3 or FC4:
- in configure sed-away the rpath with something like
/usr/bin/freetype-config --libs | sed 's|-Wl,--rpath -Wl,/usr/lib64 ||'
- sed away the rpath in the Makefiles after running configure with something like:
sed -i 's|-Wl,--rpath -Wl,/usr/lib64 ||' $(find . -name 'Makefile')
FYI: Filed Bug 173819 for a similar problem with neverball
I've just checked in your fix to CVS, but the buildsystem is broken ATM. Will
... building right now.
Should be fixed in ppracer-0.3.1-4.fc4.1.
