Description Thorsten Leemhuis 2005-11-21 11:03:39 EST
Description of problem:
The neverball 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):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
$/usr/lib/rpm/check-rpaths-worker /usr/bin/neverball
ERROR   0001: file '/usr/bin/neverball' contains a standard rpath '/usr/lib64'
in [/usr/lib64]

Additional info:
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:

Suggested workaround:
- in the Makefile sed-away the rpath with something like
/usr/bin/freetype-config --libs | sed 's|-Wl,--rpath -Wl,/usr/lib64 ||'

BTW, see also Bug 173818 for a similar problem with ppracer

Taking ownership of orphaned package.
Comment 2 Wart 2006-03-02 11:00:29 EST
The suggested Makefile change fixed the problem.  I've added a patch with that
fix and pushed through another build.   Closing.
