glibc rpm (including errata version) won't build under bash 2.04
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:58 EDT
There's a problem with glibc 2.1.3 which causes it to not build properly
under bash 2.04. The culprit is the "full-config-sysdirs" variable -- this
needs to be changed to "full_config_sysdirs" in the few places it occurs.
(MakeTAGS, Makeconfig, Makerules.) This problem has supposedly been fixed
in newer versions of glibc, so I doubt it affects RHL 7.0. (Haven't tested
Created attachment 3568 [details]
patch (-p0) to change full-config-sysdirs to full_config_sysdirs
I don't think it is worth issuing errata glibc for this, the library
is buildable with the default shell in 6.x and it is fixed in 7.0
In fact, isn't it just a warning? I remember I have fixed it in glibc
because warning annoyed me, not because it would fail to build...
It actually won't build. The error is just a warning, so the compile doesn't
stop, but not everything gets built as it should. I agree that it's not worth an
erratum, but think it's worth fixing so that if there happens to be another
security problem or whatever with glibc which is significant enough for an
update, that one builds right.
