Description John Ellson 2006-04-29 10:01:34 EDT
Description of problem:
It is now possible to run a Desktop without any i386 rpms installed (thanks
Caolan), but /usr/bin/ldd fails to run correctly if the i386 version of glibc is
not present.   It fails to produce the correct error message if the file is not
an ELF binary.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. touch x; chmod +x x
2. /usr/bin/ldd x
Actual results:
/usr/bin/ldd: line 170: /lib/ld-linux.so.2: No such file or directory
ldd: /lib/ld-linux.so.2 exited with unknown exit code (127)

Expected results:
not a dynamic executable

That patch is no good as you could have easily seen if you'd looked at the real
sources of the script.  I checked in a patch upstream.
