libss attempts to use old libreadline
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:36 EST
Description of problem:
The libss library attempts to provide command-line editing by using dlopen() to
load an editing library. The default list it attempts to use is defined (as the
DEFAULT_LIBPATH macro) in lib/ss/get_readline.c as
The current version of libreadline is libreadline.so.5.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run 'debugfs' under strace.
2. Notice that while it attempts to dlopen() libreadline.so.4, it never tries to
open the current version.
If you don't have compat-readline43 or readline-devel install, it will not find
Command-line edity goodness.
Sourceforge's bug tracker doesn't seem to be working at the moment, so I can't
file this there as well.

This was fixed back in Nov 2006...
So, it's fixed in fedora devel/fc8, and in the e2fsprogs-1.40.2.fc7 package I
just pushed to f7 updates-testing... I'll probably push 1.40.2 to fc6 as well at
some point soon.
